Nebraska Dept. of Health and Human Services sets new goals

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services has unveiled a new set of goals for the current fiscal year as part of its annual business plan.

The list announced Wednesday includes new initiatives to improve birth outcomes in Nebraska, address prescription opioid abuse and reduce turnover among child welfare workers.

Other initiatives are continuing from the previous year, including maintaining the recent improvements made at ACCESS Nebraska, a service that helps Nebraskans apply for and renew public benefits.

Gov. Pete Ricketts says the business plan is part of his efforts to make the agency more efficient and responsive to the public.

The new plan covers the current fiscal year that began on July 1 and runs through June 30, 2019.
