2024-2028 CHIP: A Healthier Wyandotte

The Wyandotte County Public Health Department (WYCO PHD) has teamed up with our community partners to address health concerns identified through the Community Health Assessment (CHA) process. We're on a mission to make Wyandotte County healthier by focusing on things like affordable housing, quality education, good jobs, and safer neighborhoods. Our goal is to provide an equal opportunity for everyone to enjoy a long and healthy life. Come on board, and let's work together to make Wyandotte County a healthier place for all.


The CHIP (Community Health Improvement Plan) is our blueprint for a healthier Wyandotte County. It’s a five-year plan, with shared goals and strategies, that address important health issues identified by community members. Currently, we’re focused on implementing the 2024-2028 CHIP. 

Collaboration is key to implement the CHIP strategies. The WYCO PHD works closely with CHIP Lead Agencies, Steering Committee, and other community partners to implement the strategies outlined in the plan. The CHIP Lead Agencies coordinate Action Teams & Committees to plan and implement projects effectively.

2024-2028 CHIP Priority Areas

The current CHIP focuses on five health priority areas identified through the CHA process:

  • Jobs & Education
  • Health Care Access
  • Safe & Affordable Housing
  • Violence Prevention
  • Behavioral Health

The CHIP also includes three "CHIP Lenses." The lenses serve as reminders that the goals of all of the CHIP priority areas must recognize, acknowledge and work to address three key systemic factors that affect Wyandotte County's opportunities for health: poverty, racism and trauma.

CHIP Booklets

WYCO PHD publishes a CHIP booklet each year of a 5-year CHIP, with support from the CHIP Steering Committee, Lead Agencies, and sponsors. The booklet outlines the strategies for each health priority area. Booklets for Years 2-5 will also include highlights from the previous year.

WYCO PHD and CHIP partners compile reports throughout the course of the 5-year CHIP. Reports include more detailed background and data than the CHIP booklets. For the 2024-2028 CHIP, there will be a full report in May 2024 with the launch of the CHIP, then an annual report on progress each year.
