Public Input:  2017 State Action Plan

In 2015, the NE DHHS completed a 5-year comprehensive needs assessment.  This assessment identified ten priorities for the maternal, infant, child, children/youth with special health care needs, and adolescent populations (summarized on p. 3).  Also completed in 2015 was an initial Action Plan, submitted to the US Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau.  This Action Plan outlined 5-year objectives to address the ten priorities, and with strategies to be implemented in Year One (October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016).  This Action Plan was part of Nebraska’s 2016 Application and 2014 Annual Report.
The NE DHHS is now requesting public input to update this Action Plan for Year Two (October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017).  The updated Action Plan will be included in Nebraska’s 2017 Title V/MCH Block Grant Application and 2015 Annual Report.
Action Requested
The NE DHHS is requesting your comments and suggestions regarding evidence-based and/or evidence-informed strategies to address the ten priorities and associated objectives.
A fillable pdf displays Nebraska’s ten priorities grouped by populations (domains).  Each page includes a table for each priority as it applies to a population.  Five year objectives are displayed in the first column.  The second column, labeled Strategies Year Two – Oct. 1, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2017 is left blank.  Please download the form and record your suggested strategies in this blank column.  You do not need to complete all pages and all priorities – just those for which you have strategies to recommend.  As you do so, reflect on your understanding of the issues as they pertain to your community and/or organization. And when possible, provide references to source of documentation of strategies being evidence-based or evidence informed.
Comments on the objectives are also welcomed.  For each priority, a space for additional objectives is included at the bottom of the left column.  Comments in other formats are also welcomed in addition to those provided using the fillable pdf.  Submissions received by April 1, 2016 will be reviewed for inclusion in the 2017 State Action Plan.
