The Sheridan County Tripartite Board is responsible for administering federal funding to areas of need in Sheridan County. Every three years the board conducts a community needs assessment that prioritizes needs within the county.
The latest needs assessment showed that the number one concern among residents is medical services.
That's Tripartite Board Chairman Les Engelter. The needs assessment listed the top six problem areas within the community. They included, medical services, housing, childcare, transportation, employment training, prescription drugs and dental services.
