Requirements for assessment and planning

 
The minimum requirements for assessment and planning are based on the Colorado Public Health Act of 2008 and national standards established by the Public Health Accreditation Board.
 
CHAPS is designed to be a standardized statewide approach while also allowing for customization based on the needs of each community. CHAPS relies on the continued sharing of real experiences, lessons learned and locally-developed tools to keep it as relevant as possible.
