According to NACCHO's 2010 National Profile of LHDs, 61% of LHDs do not have a completed agency strategic plan, one of the three prerequisites for PHAB accreditation. To address this gap, NACCHO has developed a robust how-to guide for undertaking the strategic planning process. Aligned with PHAB's strategic planning requirements, this guide offers step-by-step instructions, important considerations, and modifiable tools and templates for use in any type of LHD.
