What is MAPP?
Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is a community-driven strategic planning tool for improving community health. 

Facilitated by public health leaders, this tool helps communities apply strategic thinking to prioritize public health issues and identify resources to address them, leading to community-wide improved health and quality of life.  MAPP is not an agency-focused assessment tool; rather, it is an interactive process that can improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately the performance of local public health systems.

Forces of Change Assessment
The Forces of Change Assessment focuses on identifying forces such as legislation, technology, and other impending changes that affect the context in which the community and its public health system operate. This answers the questions: "What is occurring or might occur that affects the health of our community or the local public health system?" and "What specific threats or opportunities are generated by these occurrences?"

Community Themes & Strengths Assessment
The Community Themes & Strengths Assessment provides a deep understanding of the issues that residents feel are important by answering the questions: "What is important to our community?" "How is quality of life perceived in our community?" and "What assets do we have that can be used to improve community health?"  This assessment results in a strong understanding of community issues and concerns, perceptions about quality of life, and a map of community assets.
