Colorado partnerships received funding for sharing health services

The Center for Sharing Public Health Services has selected 11 public health teams, including two in Colorado, to participate in a new funding initiative focused on cross-jurisdictional sharing in public health. This sharing occurs when jurisdictions, such as counties or cities, collaborate to deliver public health services across boundaries. By working together, public health agencies can build economies of scale that improve effectiveness and efficiency.
As part of the program, the eleven teams will receive grant funding and one-on-one technical assistance from the Center. The Center will get the opportunity to observe progress and to capture learning that it will use to develop and disseminate new tools and resources and to provide technical assistance to other jurisdictions that are considering or adopting CJS approaches.
  • Colorado: West Central Public Health Partnership—This partnership, which comprises six frontier and rural counties, is seeking to improve communications among member counties and to assess the effectiveness of and capacity for shared services and activities. The following counties participate in the partnership: Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel.
  • Colorado: San Luis Valley Public Health Partnership—This partnership, which comprises three frontier and three rural counties, will develop and implement a cross-jurisdictional data collection and management system. The following counties participate in the partnership: Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mineral, Saguache and Rio Grande.
