Community Health Needs

At least every five years, local boards of health lead a community-wide discussion with stakeholders and residents about their community’s health needs.


After identifying needs in the community, the next step is to identify objectives and strategies to address those needs. The process, Community Health  Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHA/CHIP) is a fundamental element in statewide planning. CHA & CHIP has more than a 20-year history in Iowa and represents local action to promote and protect the health of Iowans.



For more information on our last Health Improvement Plan read the 2016 Jones County CHNA/HIP report below!

The Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan are living documents that may be updated periodically.

Send an email to or call (319) 462-6945 if you have a community health need you would like to discuss.
