Case Studies in Staff Sharing in Local Public Health was developed by the Center for State and Local Government Excellence (SLGE) with support from the Center for Sharing Public Health Services. The report offers an in-depth examination of how local health departments have implemented staff-sharing arrangements across geographic boundaries. The research provides important insight on key challenges, how the effort was implemented, financial consideration, outcomes and lessons learned through two case studies of staff-sharing arrangements in New Jersey and Minnesota. The report also highlights two areas of focus that are critical as local leaders consider sharing staff across jurisdictions: building the business case for cross-jurisdictional sharing and evaluating the success of the arrangement.
