Video: What is Larimer County's CHIP?

In 2008, Colorado passed the Public Health Reauthorization Act, which requires local public health agencies to create a health improvement plan based on a community health assessment and with community input. Larimer County’s health improvement plan is developed every five years and is entitled the Community Health Improvement Plan or CHIP for short.

Larimer County Department of Health and Environment is excited to announce the new priorities for the 2019-2023 Community Health Improvement Plan:

In an equitable and culturally responsive manner:

  • Promote Mental and Emotional Wellbeing across the lifespan
    • Address Gaps in Required Continuum of Care 
    • Substance Use Disorder and Treatment
    • Primary Prevention
  • Provide access to Quality Childcare
    • Affordability
    • Recruitment and Retention of the Childcare Workforce
    • Infant and Toddler Care
