A recent NY Times article found that 535,000 children a year test positive for lead poisoning.
Many of these victims are preyed upon by investment companies seeking to rent to lower income families, and often the houses are found to have unsuitable living conditions.
The article stated, "Poor families that buy or rent one of these rundown homes often find themselves with another problem: Because they do not technically own their house, they are ineligible for any state or local grants to help defray the cost of removing lead paint."
