Cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) has been the focus of interest for some years from policymakers and public health officials wishing to increase effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of public health services.
In order to better understand the impact of cross-jurisdictional sharing among public health agencies, RWJF seeks to fund up to seven projects to participate in a 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.
