Carson City – Douglas County, Nevada

Title: Integrating public health services between Carson City and Douglas County in Nevada

The Carson City Health and Human Services, a neighboring county (where public health services are provided by the state) and the Nevada State Health Division will be developing a cross jurisdictional sharing (CJS) model and plan to improve public health service efficiency and effectiveness within the local jurisdictions.  The project team will develop a cross jurisdictional sharing model and toolkit for implementation of the model to be shared with participating and neighboring jurisdiction.  The team will also prepare a detailed implementation plan for a CJS approach to delivering environmental health services at the local level.

The $124,688 grant supports CJS exploration and planning involving the state health division and one city health department in order to serve more than 100,000 people in one city and a neighboring county.
