Local Assessment and Planning

Local public health agencies in Colorado follow the CHAPS processes to assess population and environmental health, assess system-wide capacity, determine priority areas, and develop and implement their public health improvement plans. While the process is similar, locals work on slightly different timelines and prioritize a wide variety of health and environmental issues. The following maps and documents can be used to help to inform the state process as well as serve as a starting place for local agencies to connect and partner with one another based on the CHAPS phase that they are currently working in as well as shared priorities, goals, and strategies.

Use the CHAPS Status button at the top of the map below to view CHAPS status by LPHA or partnership. Click on the LPHA or partnership to access the link to their most recent public health improvement plan. Click on the PHIP Priorities button at the top of the map to view the various current PHIP priorities by county.
