Welcome Header
Colorado Health Assessment and Planning System (CHAPS) provides a standard process to help local public health agencies meet assessment and planning requirements of the Public Health Act of 2008. CHAPS also assists agencies that want to prepare for voluntary accreditation by the national Public Health Accreditation Board, as the process aligns with many national standards.

This website provides guidance for the CHAPS process, interactive tools and templates that you can download to use in assessment and planning work, and examples from local public health agencies. This is a new website and we will be adding more content soon. Please let us know what you think!
