Larimer County 2022 Community Health Assessment

Read the 2022 Larimer County Community Health Assessment here. 

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 Community Health Improvement Plan (or CHIP for short) is developed every five years to ensure that community voice guides our priorities in health related prevention work for everyone in Larimer County.
