CHAPS is a coordinated public health improvement planning process across the state of Colorado. Local public health agencies and their partners (e.g. community organizations, hospitals, local government, education, transportation, housing, law enforcement, etc.) are all using similar processes to assess population and environmental health, assess capacity, determine priorities, develop action plans and implement their public health improvement plans. They may not be on the exact same timeline (see the CHAPS status map), however, it is similar enough to collect and analyze local priorities to better understand the breadth and depth of priority areas across the state. This is especially important in the years when the state health assessment and plan overlap with local efforts. Efforts are made to connect local-level priorities, goals and strategies to inform the state process.
