In 2015, a new process of conducting a statewide community health needs assessment, called the SHNAPP (Statewide Health Needs Assessment Planning Program) was launched. County-level Community Health Needs Assessment reports were produced in 2016; going forward these reports will be used to inform community engagement and action planning by hospitals, state/local governments and other partners. Central Maine Health Care, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, MaineHealth and the Maine CDC are contributing financial support to the study and reports.
SHNAPP Community Engagement Reporting Form
Community engagement means people and organizations throughout Maine are sharing input about the Shared Health Needs Assessment and Planning Process (SHNAPP). Input is collected by people trained to complete the SHNAPP Community Engagement Reporting Form. Please note that in clicking the form link, you will be redirected to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention's website where you can complete the online form. There is also a SHNAPP Feedback Form for Implementation Strategy.
