Blackstone Valley Partnership for Public Health - BVPPH

The Blackstone Valley Partnership for Public Health (BVPPH) is a regional collaborative created in partnership with the Central Mass Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC), and includes the towns of Blackstone, Douglas, Hopedale, Mendon, Millville, Northbridge, Upton, and Uxbridge. Through the Public Health Excellence Grant, the BVPPH provides supplemental public health services to its communities, from assisting in inspections of permitted establishments to providing educational services and materials to its community members. This is done as part of the BVPPH's goal to share municipal services to better promote, protect, and preserve the public health.

The Town of Northbridge serves as the host community for the shared inspectors hired under the BVPPH. Within Northbridge, the shared inspectors (see below) conduct Food Establishment, Tanning Salon, Body Art, and Housing Inspections. Additionally, the inspectors investigate nuisance complaints and assist in the execution of public health initiatives such as vaccine clinics and distribution of resources.
