Community Health Improvement Plan

Alpine County Fall Colors 1

Alpine County is pleased to announce that as of October 1, 2020 we have started work to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan!


A community health improvement plan (or CHIP) is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems in our community. It will be used by health and other governmental, education, and human service agencies, in collaboration with community partners to set priorities and coordinate and target resources.

Through this process, we will develop a 3 to 5 year plan that will help us develop policies, guide actions, and provide a road map for how we can increase healthy living throughout Alpine County.

And we need your help!

Developing a CHIP is a collaborative process that requires the input of key stakeholders and the community as a whole. We want to develop a CHIP that includes the voices of all of Alpine’s diverse communities and individuals, and that works to improve health for all our residents.

Given social distancing guidelines, we expect to use some creative approaches to connect with you as we work through this process. Over the 10-12 months, be on the look-out for flyers, posters, emails, text messages, and mailings that ask for your feedback on key elements of the CHIP, such as vision and value statements, and goals and objectives to increase health outcomes.

We will also use this website to keep you updated on the progress of the CHIP and ways that you can contribute. So please check back regularly.

If you would like to receive regular email updates about the CHIP, you can opt into the Alpine CHIP listserv by sending an email to chip@alpinecountyca.gov
