The Community Health Assessment (CHA) is a collaborative, community-centered process to collect, analyze, and share data on the health of the community. Local health departments are required to conduct a CHA to identify gaps and opportunities to improve the health of the population. The CHA is the basis for priority setting, planning, program development, policy changes, coordination of community resources, funding applications, and new ways to collaboratively use community assets.
