CAHPS - Community Health and Programs Services

Community Health and Program Services (CHAPS) builds healthy communities and eliminates health disparities by providing national leadership in community health promotion and disease prevention through innovative programs, such as: Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.), the Preventive Health and Health Services (PHHS) Block Grant, State-Based Epidemiology for Public Health Programs (STEPPS), and YMCA’s Pioneering Healthier Communities. These cross-cutting programs help expand CDC’s ability to develop community-based health promotion strategies.
