DPHCS is planning the 2021-2024 CHIP

The 2021-2024 Greater Nashua CHIP is the fourth consecutive CHIP, based off the 2020 CHA. The Greater Nashua PHAC Executive Committee and CHIP Planning Team chose the following health priority areas for the 2021-2024 CHIP based on the 2020 Greater Nashua CHA (*indicates state requirement):

  • Behavioral Health*
  • Chronic Diseases
  • Communicable Diseases
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Public Health Emergency Preparedness*

We are currently in the process of developing the 2021-2024 CHIP to detail evidence-based strategies that will be implemented to bring positive change in the prioritized areas. Help us to complete our 2021-2024 CHIP by taking our Community Survey for parents and families! This information will help us find our strengths and areas to improve upon in the Greater Nashua Region. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes and is available in English, Spanish, and Swahili
