Health Districts

Health districts were created for use in NJSHAD based on New Jersey Local Health Department (LHD) coverage areas as of October 29, 2019. LHD coverage areas change over time, so the groupings used here may not correspond to current LHD service areas. Visit the Office of Local Public Health website for the most current version of the directory.

The names of LHDs are not always indicative of their service areas. Please consult the table below to see which areas are covered by each LHD used in the NJBRFS query module.
