Michigan Local Public Health Accreditation

The Michigan Local Public Health Accreditation Program identifies and promotes the implementation of public health standards for local public health departments and evaluates and accredits departments based upon their ability to meet these standards.

The program is a collaborative effort between the Michigan Public Health Institute; the Michigan Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development, Environmental Quality, and Health and Human Services; the Michigan Association for Local Public Health; and Michigan's local public health departments. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services provides oversight and funding for the program.
