CSA Planning Resources

One of the major goals of the collaborative service areas is to foster relationships and partnerships within the counties between local public health agencies, community action programs and community-based organizations to best serve those living within the area.  We have identified several resources that are available to assist with the planning process.

The Center for Sharing Public Health Services is focused on exploring and promoting the value of cross-jurisdictional sharing (and resource sharing in general) to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of access to and delivery of public health services.

The Community Tool Box is a free, online resource for those working to build healthier communities and bring about social change. It offers thousands of pages of tips and tools for taking action in communities.

Section 2. Participatory Approaches to Planning Community Interventions may be helpful for the types of conversations that may be taking place locally.
