Cumberland County, Maine CJS

Title: Developing a sustainable model for cross-jurisdictional sharing for public health services among Portland, Cumberland County and the state of Maine

This project team plans to develop a sustainable cross jurisdictional sharing (CJS) model for public health service delivery among the city health department, the county within which the city is located, and the state public health agency.  The team will determine where service gaps exist, analyze options for addressing those gaps, and develop a plan for how CJS could reduce those gaps.

The $124,826 grant supports this examination of CJS involving one state and one city health department serving more than 280,000 people in one county and the city.
