Community Health Assessment & Community Health Improvement Plan 2024

Nevada County is pleased to announce that as of April 1, 2023, we have started work to develop an updated

Community Health Assessment and Community health Improvement Plan!

A Community Health Assessment (CHA) will identify key health needs and issues through comprehensive data collection and analysis, while the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) will build off that assessment by developing long-term goals, strategies, and activities to address public health concerns in Nevada County. Both the CHA and CHIP will support public health accreditation and will be used by health and other governmental, education, and human service agencies, in collaboration with community partners, to set priorities and coordinate and target resources.

Through this Community Health Improvement (CHI) process, we will develop a 3 to 5-year plan that will serve as a road map for how we can increase healthy living and health equity throughout Nevada County. 

And we need your help!

The CHI process is a collaborative process that requires the input of key partners and community members. We want to develop a CHA and CHIP that include the voices of Nevada County’s diverse communities and individuals and that works to improve health for all our residents. 

We will use this website to keep you updated on the CHI process and ways that you can be involved. Please check back regularly. For questions or to learn more about how to get involved, email
