CHIP Examples

NACCHO maintains an online Resource Center for Community Health Assessments (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP). Contained within that site are examples of high quality CHAs and CHIPs created by local public health department demonstration sites from across the country. These sites engaged in a robust community health improvement process that yielded two of the three accreditation prerequisites: a CHA and CHIP.
