This page provides an overview of the process and timelines for completing a CHA CHIP process and for local public health reporting to IDPH. The CHA CHIP program is currently being redeveloped and templates and resources are being developed.
What is a CHA CHIP and how do I get started?
A CHA CHIP is a community-wide process for identifying the most important factors affecting health in the community and developing a plan to improve health by building on community strengths and working on gaps.
