LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is asking local health departments across the state to consider sharing services and other ways of collaborating.

The department is asking health departments for proposals that would boost links among counties and health department districts. An estimated $300,000 is available for up to 10 collaborative efforts and awards may range from $10,000 to $75,000.

The department says so-called cross jurisdictional sharing is an important idea in the future of heath care in Michigan and across the U.S.

Applicants must be a single existing local health department in Michigan applying in partnership with one or more other local health departments. Proposals are due Feb. 22.
