The City of Worcester Division of Public Health is the first nationally accredited health department in Massachusetts as well as the only multi-jurisdictional accredited health department in the country.
The Public Health Division is the lead agency of the Central MA Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA). The CMRPHA is a coalition of five municipalities (Towns of Grafton, Millbury, Shrewsbury, and West Boylston and the City of Worcester) working cooperatively to create and sustain a viable, cost-effective, and labor-efficient regional public health alliance. Services offered include community health, environmental health, emergency preparedness, nursing and epidemiology.
The City of Worcester has released applications for two more programs related to ARPA Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. Eligible applicants can now submit proposals for funding in the areas of Mental Health Support Programs and Services, and in Job Training.
