CHLI - Tools To Get Started

Tools To Get Started

Community Healthy Living Index (CHLI) contains assessments for six key community settings: afterschool child care sites, early childhood programs, neighborhoods, schools, work sites, and the community at large. Each assessment contains questions about policies and practices that support healthy lifestyles; each question provides a "best practice" or improvement idea for sites to implement.

Following the completion of the assessment, the site then completes the Discussion and Improvement Planning Guide, which provides discussion prompts to guide a site's conversation to identify first steps.
