Through all our collaborative CHIP work, we aim to uphold these principles:
We will reach our CHIP goals and objectives by focusing on these collaborative strategies in our coordinated efforts:
CHIP development begins with a Community Health Assessment (CHA), which Lincoln County completed in 2018 (full report Community Health Assessment (PDF)). Listening sessions were held with a wide variety of community groups to discuss the CHA results and to select 3 priority areas for the CHIP.
The current CHIP was developed through three workgroups. Each workgroup is responsible for a priority area. The three workgroups and priority areas are: Healthy Living, Mental Health Promotion and Community Resilience, and Substance Abuse Prevention.
Over November and December of 2019, each workgroup convened in two planning meetings. The purpose of these meetings was to develop the plan that will guide our community's work in these priority areas over the next five years.
The 2019 to 2024 CHIP was finalized in March 2020 and is being implemented through coordinated efforts between community-based organizations, engaged community members, and governmental agencies.
Anyone who lives, works, or learns in Lincoln County is welcome to participate in the workgroups.
It is important for the organizations and individuals affected by the plan to be involved with developing and implementing it.
Lincoln County Public Health supports the community organizations and community members involved in the CHIP by facilitating meetings; collecting, processing, and sharing data; and publishing reports for the community.
