Questions related to fiscal implications in sharing arrangements should be addressed in Phase Two of the Roadmap to Develop Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Initiatives.
Examples of issues to consider:
- Do you know the current and prospective cost of the service to be shared?
- If applicable, how will the cost be allocated? Or what is the cost allocation plan among the jurisdictions?
- What are existing and potential funding streams that can assure adequate and sustainable operational funding?
- Are there issues that need to be addressed related to uneven levels of local taxation to support public health services among the jurisdictions involved?
Resources to help answer these questions can be found below the line.

The resources are part of the Center’s CJS Resource Library, which contains best practices, lessons learned and tools that can help jurisdictions considering or adopting cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangements. While most tools and resources in the library primarily focus on public health CJS, some address public sector CJS more broadly.
