Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

What is a CHIP? 

A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) uses the results of a Community Health Assessment (CHA) to set goals and objectives for addressing a community’s most pressing health needs. CHIPs can be used to secure funding and organize resources needed to address identified needs.

Since 2010, the City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS) has worked with community agencies, partners, and members in a collaborative planning process that has resulted in three completed CHAs (2011, 2014, and 2017) and three CHIPs (2012-2015, 2015-2018, and 2018-2021).
