Southwest Washington

Title: Implementing a governance structure to support a shared approach to delivering efficient public health services in Southwest Washington state

Building on their cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) efforts to date, Cowlitz, Clark, Skamania and Wahkiakum County Health Departments and the Cowlitz Tribal Health Department will develop a preferred CJS model, identify services that have the potential to be shared effectively, and prepare a workplan for implementing the selected model.

The $115,168 grant supports continuing CJS development and improvement efforts involving four single county health departments and one non-reservation based Tribe serving more than 1.1 million people across four counties.
