The CHaPs program is a dedicated multi-agency initiative focused on unlocking social infrastructure and integrated service delivery opportunities by:

  • facilitating sharing of data and information to inform cross-government place-based decision making
  • brokering cross-government, cross-sector and industry partnerships
  • researching, promoting and embedding evidence-based collaborative approaches.

CHaPs works with all levels of government, non-government organisations and the private sector in areas of population growth and/or changing community needs.
