Visit: Summary of the Local Public Health Act

The Local Public Health Act outlines the shared public health responsibilities of the state and local governments in Minnesota and establishes accountability for funding on statewide initiatives, provides guidelines for assessment and planning, requires documented progress toward the achievement of statewide goals, and assigns oversight of the statewide system to the commissioner of health.

The community health board is the legally recognized governing body for local public health in Minnesota. It is the only governmental entity eligible for funding under the Local Public Health Act grant. Community health boards have statutory responsibility under the Local Public Health Act. Community health boards work in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to address the areas of public health responsibility.
