CDHS Performance Plan

CDHS annually prepares a performance plan to outline the goals and activities to be undertaken in the coming state fiscal year. Its contents are a reflection of the vision of the Department and the synthesis of the input received from staff, stakeholders and community partners, collected through a series of town hall and staff meetings, webinars and online surveys conducted throughout the summer.
