Project will help grantees prioritize community public health needs and advance health equity

Washington, DC, May 18, 2022
—The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Health Resources and Services Administration, has announced the Spring 2022 pilot sites for the newly revised Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework. NACCHO has awarded ten 10 health departments—nine local and one tribal health department—varying in size, rurality, and setting across the country, with up to $20,000 each to field-test a selection of the revised MAPP 2.0 handbook guidance, tools and assessments. The results of this project will yield improved tools for all local health departments to engage in community-driven strategic planning, prioritize public health issues, and identify resources to address them.

MAPP is NACCHO’s flagship framework for community health improvement (CHI). Following a national evaluation of the MAPP framework in 2019, NACCHO facilitated a “MAPP Evolution” process to adapt the framework to better meet current field needs and trends around CHI—all focused on advancing health equity.

The participating health departments are:

  • City of Milwaukee Health Department, Milwaukee, WI
  • Columbus Public Health, Columbus, OH
  • Denton County Public Health, Denton, TX
  • Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Public Health and Human Services, Cherokee, NC
  • Goodhue County Health & Human Services, Red Wing, MN
  • Henry County Combined General Health District, Napoleon, OH
  • Jackson County Health Department, Independence, MO
  • Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health, Lawrence, KS
  • Maricopa County Department of Public Health, Phoenix, AZ
  • Mesa County Public Health, Grand Junction, CO

During the pilot test period, the selected health departments will review the handbook guidance for the first two phases of MAPP 2.0 and implement the new tools and the revised assessments to help NACCHO understand their feasibility, applicability, and effectiveness, and to provide suggested revisions:

Phase 1: Build the Community Health Improvement Foundation of MAPP 2.0 sets the stage for the MAPP process. The activities in this phase build commitment and ownership among a wide variety of participants so that the people involved in MAPP are representative of the entire community. Pilot testers will implement the new Stakeholder and Power Analysis and Starting Point Assessment to identify people to engage and assess resource capacity.

Phase 2: Tell the Community Story includes guidance to lead communities through a community health (needs) assessment conducted through an array of perspectives, ranging from health outcomes to root causes of those outcomes. The assessments help communities gather a more complete, accurate, and timely understanding of their community’s health and well-being across all of their sub-populations. Pilot testers will implement the revised assessments of MAPP 2.0: the Community Status Assessment, Community Partners Assessment, and Community Context Assessment.
