Community Health & Performance Management 
 Nebraska's Local Health Departments

When the Nebraska Health Care Funding Act was passed in May 2001, 16 new multi-county health departments were created. As a result, all Nebraska counties are now covered by a local health department. The Office of Community Health & Performance Management provides technical assistance to all local public health departments and monitors the funds that are distributed under the Act.
