What is a CHA?

A Community Health Assessment is done every 3 to 5 years. It is one part of a data-driven process focused on improving community health. By first understanding what the top health-related issues are, public health and community partners can then take a deeper dive into learning about those top issues and creating a plan to help improve health outcomes. For the Health Department, the next step is known as a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).

Local public health has conducted a CHA every 3-5 years since 2009 in Snohomish County. The last one was done in 2018.
