IPLAN (Illinois Project Local Assessment of Needs)





The Illinois Project for Local Assessment of Needs (IPLAN) is a Community Health Assessment and Planning Process that is conducted every five years by local health jurisdictions in Illinois.  In 2020, the health department moved to a 3-year plan to match the local hospitals and mental health’s 3 year plans.   The essential elements of IPLAN are:

  • An organizational capacity assessment
  • A community health needs assessment; and
  • A community health plan, focusing on a minimum of three priority health problems
