Community & Strategic Plans

Multiple efforts are necessary to address the health areas identified as unfavorable. Coordinated efforts and partnerships will be critical.
LHF welcomes community agencies and groups to access and use these data (available through our website). In addition to the full report, the data are available in a format that can be reconfigured to best meet the needs of the business, agency or community group.
LHF will use the Community Health Assessment to develop a Community Plan and a Strategic Plan. The full details of our plans along with members of the Community Plan Advisory Board may be viewed here.
