Central Massachusetts  Regional Public Health Alliance

Title: Improving and sustaining shared public health services in Central Massachusetts

The Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA) and its six participating local jurisdictions will further develop the capacity and capabilities of the newly formed multi-jurisdiction district to perform effectively and efficiently with a goal of accreditation by 2015.  Cross jurisdictional sharing (CJS) project work includes analysis and planning needed to ensure longer term financial stability and development of common policies, procedures, practices and workforce development throughout all the jurisdictions in the district.

The $124,242 grant supports these CJS improvement efforts by the multi-jurisdictional health public health alliance serving nearly 280,000 people in one city and five towns.
