WCPN: Rob Fischer, associate professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and co-director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, said that Cleveland saw a surge in lead-safe applications in the final months of 2021. “I want to honor the fact that we have really made considerable progress over this year,” he said. “But I don’t want people to be misled that we don’t still have a long way to go.”
