Tools for Community Action from CDC's Healthy Communities Program


Resources include the Community Health Assessment and Group Evaluation (CHANGE) Tool and several Action Guides that provide communities with “how-to” guidance for implementing effective community-level health promotion strategies.

Local jurisdictions working to implement Health in All Policies (HiAP) in their jurisdictions will also find these resources useful to promote community health in their strategies.
