Community Health Improvement Plan

A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on Community Health Assessment (CHA) results. This plan is used by the community, including governmental agencies and community partners, to set priorities, align resources, and coordinate a response.

The CHIP Steering Committee, community members, and stakeholders used the CHA findings and further prioritized the community’s health concerns into four strategic areas for the next five years.

  1. Education & Jobs
  2. Health Care Access
  3. Safe & Affordable Housing
  4. Violence Prevention

Groups of stakeholders formed to work on each area have identified goals, objectives, and strategies, and lead agencies have been identified to partner with the Unified Government Health Department in implementing the action plans to ensure this work becomes a reality.


The Unified Government Public Health Department (UGPHD) is beginning the process of turning the 2022 Community Health Assessment (CHA) into the 2024-2028 CHIP. You can provide your feedback on the 2022 CHA health issues at the link below:
