The Erie County Health Department is receiving not one but two national awards.

The department is being honored for two innovative programs launched in Erie County that are unique to this region.

One achievement award is for a program that gives grants to local businesses to update lactation policies so more working mothers can breast feed comfortably.

The other program involves a task force to help monitor and minimize harmful algae in Lake Erie.
