Future Maine events TBD

CHCC will work with all elementary and middle schools to encourage participation in the Fundred Dollar Bill Project. During the summer, CHCC will work with the Biddeford and Saco Recreation Departments to incorporate the project into their summer camp programs.

Coastal Healthy Communities Coalition (CHCC) will use the resources and materials from the Fundred Dollar Bill Project (initiated nationwide by artist Mel Chin and coordinated in New England by AIC) to educate children and their parents on the risks of lead poisoning. (For more information about the Fundred Dollar Bill Project and its presence in New England, go to the AIC Past Events webpage.)

Maine has some of the oldest housing stock in the nation, and most lead exposure comes from lead paint dust. Just five communities in Maine account for 40% of all newly discovered harmful levels of lead in the state: Biddeford/Saco, Lewiston/Auburn, Portland, Sanford and Bangor.
