Nevada County has begun to develop its 2024 Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). A Community Health Assessment identifies key health needs and issues in our community through comprehensive data collection and analysis. The Community Health Improvement Plan will build on the assessment through the development of long-term goals, strategies, and activities to address public health concerns in Nevada County. The CHA and CHIP will be used by the Nevada County Public Health Department 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 process, Nevada County will develop a 3- to 5-year plan that will serve as a road map for increasing healthy living and health equity throughout Nevada County.
Creating a CHIP is a collaborative process. Each of us has a role in working to improve health and quality of life in Nevada County. Nevada County wants to develop a CHA and CHIP that include the voices of Nevada County’s diverse communities and that works to improve health for all residents. There will be many opportunities for residents to get involved during this process. We are currently seeking community input on the Nevada County Community Health Improvement Vision and Value Statements. To provide this valuable feedback, please complete the Vision and Values Survey by July 21st.
Multiple individuals from the same family or organization are welcome to complete the survey, but we ask that each person only complete the survey once.
