CHAPS Guidance and tools

Welcome to CHAPS guidance and tools!
Use the eight phases of CHAPS to guide your local health agency's collaborative community health assessment and public health improvement plan process. By doing so, your agency will meet requirements of the Colorado Public Health Act and create a way to address leading public and environmental health issues in your communities.
Each phase includes
  • CHAPS tools and templates to help get you started.
  • Recommended steps.
  • Locally developed resources for peer sharing.
