The Los Alamos County Health Council (LACHC), in collaboration with County Social Services staff, is developing a Los Alamos County Comprehensive Health Plan (CHP). Upon adoption by the County Council, this plan will guide the next five to seven years of health, wellness, and social services planning in Los Alamos County.

The development of this CHP fulfills responsibilities under NM House Bill (HB) 137 “County and Tribal Health Councils Act” and the Incorporated County of Los Alamos Resolution No. 19-28 (that created the LACHC in its current form: as a County Board or Commission -December 3rd 2019).
This CHP builds upon previous health planning efforts that were conducted by contracted consulting firms.
In 2021, the LACHC received funding from the CDC Health Equity and Community Rebuilding Initiative (Kellogg Grant) to dedicate to this work. By supplementing this grant with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, the Los Alamos County Social Services Division was able to hire a public health professional with 20 years of community-based public health planning experience to guide these efforts.
The current process is rooted in the community with intentional outreach to a wide diversity of residents and service providers. Careful attention will be paid to those needs and barriers that have continued to be priorities over time.
The September 2023 presentation to the County Council(PDF, 1MB) provides information on how public input, such as the brief questionnaire below, is being incorporated into developing the Comprehensive Health Plan.
