Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP)

Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is a community-driven strategic planning process for improving community health. Facilitated by public health leaders, this framework helps communities apply strategic thinking to prioritize public health issues and identify resources to address them. MAPP is not an agency-focused assessment process; rather, it is an interactive process that can improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately the performance of local public health systems.

Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is designed to spur collective action to improve population health and equity, and NACCHO is proud to have contributed to the following Journal of Public Health Management & Practice article, "Results From a National Mixed-Methods Study Exploring Community Health Improvement Implementation: An Opportunity to Strengthen Public Health Systems Through Collective Action," which explores the characteristics of MAPP users who completed the MAPP Action Cycle and factors that facilitated or inhibited implementation activities.

MAPP Evolution: A Blueprint for the Future

Following a national evaluation of the MAPP framework, NACCHO is spearheading a MAPP evolution process to adapt the framework and related training and resources to better meet current field needs and trends around community health improvement (CHI). With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Resources and Services Administration, NACCHO worked with the field to outline revisions to the framework and develop a multi-year blueprint for conducting a MAPP re-design.

Access the MAPP Evolution Blueprint Executive Summary and May 2022 update below to learn more. As NACCHO is embarking on this exciting journey to evolve MAPP, we are committed to keeping the field informed and engaged in the process.
