Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Implementation and Impact Measurement Program

  • Release Date: August 25, 2015


Up to seven teams engaged in public health cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) implementation efforts will be funded to participate in a CJS Implementation and Impact Measurement Program. Successfully funded teams implementing CJS arrangements will each receive up to $75,000 to measure (with baseline and follow-up data collection points) the impact of their arrangements. Funded teams will also receive technical assistance related to both project implementation and impact measurement. Eligible CJS arrangements must include a minimum of three contiguous jurisdictions of any size, or two contiguous jurisdictions if the combined population is 50,000 or greater.

Total Awards

  • Up to seven applicants will be funded.
  • Grants of up to a total of $75,000 each will be awarded.
  • Grants will begin on February 16, 2016, and end on or before October 15, 2017.
  • Grants will support the activities necessary to measure the impact of the CJS arrangement.

The Center will manage the CJS Implementation and Impact Measurement Program and coordinate the provision of technical assistance. NNPHI will make and administer the grants. Support for all of these activities comes from RWJF.
