LeadCare Illinois has paused processing lead-in-water test kits while we wait for a new round of funding for the program to be released. Sign up for our waiting list, and we will notify you as soon as we resume processing test kits.

All licensed child care providers are required participate in a lead safety training. LeadCare Illinois offers free online trainings in English and Spanish that help providers fulfill their Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) training requirement.

Topics covered in the training include:

  • DCFS lead in water testing rules
  • How lead gets into water
  • The impact of lead exposure on children
  • How to interpret lead in water test results
  • How to create a mitigation plan if lead is present at or above 2.01 ppb
