community benefit plans

The gitm Team’s mission is in providing leadership in organizing community wide efforts that enhance community health.  The gitm Team does so by building Community Benefit Plans. A Community Benefit Plan is based on results from multiple assessments of community health needs. This includes working with the  Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA),  Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP), and Performance Management Plans then developing action steps and collaborations with community partners to move plans into viable community benefits. 

The gitm Team will educate and engage cross sector individuals, businesses and organizations in providing community benefits to meet the needs of critical issues, such as food access, environmental health, mental health and other social health determinants.
