CHIPP Infrastructure Improvement Project

"Building the Infrastructure to Make Wisconsin the Healthiest State: Strengthening and Integrating Community Health Improvement Processes and Plans (CHIPP)”

The CHIPP Infrastructure Improvement Project sought to strengthen and evaluate community health improvement processes and plans (CHIPP) in Wisconsin in a coordinated and efficient manner, resulting in the collaborative selection and implementation of effective programs and policies to improve health outcomes in communities. In short: improve CHIPP to improve health.

Several new community health improvement tools and resources were created by the CHIPP Infrastructure Improvement Project and piloted by ten funded sites. The main tools and resources are referenced throughout this site and listed on the Table of Resources. The CHIPP Infrastructure Improvement Project produced several other documents, including: an environmental scan that inventoried CHIPP resources; reports of focus groups, surveys, and interviews regarding CHIPP; and several newsletter articles. For copies of these and other resources, please contact Sarah Beversdorf, Project Manager:
