Partnership for a Healthy Community


The Partnership for a Healthy Community consists of local agencies and organizations, as well as community members that work collaboratively to identify health priorities and strategies to address these priority issues. In 2017, the third cycle of the MAPP (Mobilizing for Action for Planning and Partnership) was initiated by the Partnership for a  Healthy Community Steering Committee. The MAPP cycle is used to conduct the Community Health Needs Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan.

Based on extensive analysis of the Community Health Needs Assessment, the following were identified as the three priority issues for Kankakee County for 2019-2021:

  • Access to Health
  • Behavioral Health
  • Education and Employment
