The goal of the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria is to improve the health and well-being of everyone who lives, works and plays in Alexandria. This goal is achieved by facilitating and supporting community action to address Alexandria’s Community Health Improvement Plan’s priorities.
Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan 2020-2025
The Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan is a five-year plan to improve the health and well-being of everyone in Alexandria. The 2020-2025 Plan builds upon the successes and lessons learned from the development and implementation of the prior five-year plan. The Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan was created through extensive community conversations, forums and direction. The Plan’s three priority areas--housing, mental health and poverty—were selected by the community from among the top 10 health issues identified in Alexandria’s 2019 Community Health Assessment. Click below to learn more about the three priority areas in the Plan and the related strategies and tactics to successfully address these priority areas.
Unified Planning Process
Call to Action
In 2019, an opportunity presented itself when the timing of revisions to three major city-related plans coincided--the ACPS’ Strategic Plan (ACPS 2025), the Department of Community and Human Services’ Children and Youth Master Plan, and the Alexandria Health Department and the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria’s Community Health Improvement Plan. These organizations established a Unified Planning Team to collectively develop these plans, increasing the opportunity to maximize collective community engagement, share important data, and focus on shared outcomes.
The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria Mini Grants provide funding to a select number of qualified organizations to advance specific goals and strategies in the Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan, 2020-2025. For more specific information about the grant process and cycle, please go to the Mini-Grants page,
One of the most important aspects about the Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan is that it was developed, and it will be implemented by the Alexandria community. To join in the action to improve the health and well-being of everyone in Alexandria, please sign up.
