Services for "C‐Stat Distinguished Performance" in 2014.
C‐Stat is the Department’s performance management strategy that tracks more than 100 measures in real time across all programs in an effort to improve outcomes for all Coloradans. Counties are assessed on 21 performance measures for which Custer County met all of their goals 79.6%.
“I am proud of our partners in Custer County, they have demonstrated that using timely data results in meaningful differences for the people they serve in their community,” said CDHS Executive Director Reggie Bicha.
One example of a C‐Stat performance measure Custer County met was timely processing of New Adult financial applications. Timely processing of these applications for needy and the disabled ensures that eligible Coloradans in Custer County have needed access to the resources that increase their economic security.
