Community Health Inclusion Sustainability Planning (CHISP) Guide
One of the most important components of building healthy, inclusive communities is local leadership that understands the importance of inclusion and sustainability as a foundation for lasting healthy change. To that end, in collaboration with Easter Seals and a diverse range of partners, NCHPAD created the Community Health Inclusion Sustainability Planning (CHISP) Guide as a resource to build and enhance such leadership within local communities in all areas of health planning, action, and evaluation.
The CHISP is intended to be used to create or enhance the efforts of existing local health coalitions. Additionally, it can be used by local health leaders and organizations to incorporate elements of sustainable inclusion into existing and upcoming community health efforts to ensure all community members, including those with disability, experience the benefits of these efforts.
The CHISP is intended to be utilized in tandem with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) A Sustainability Planning Guide for Healthy Communities (Planning Guide), both of which contain excellent information on all stages of sustainable coalition planning,
action, and evaluation. Each section of the CHISP mirrors that of the Planning Guide, providing corresponding page numbers so each can be used in congress with the other to ensure maximal levels of inclusion and sustainability for all community health efforts. The CHISP includes additional information, resources, and examples specific to the areas of disability, inclusion, and universal design, to name a few.
