National Public Health Performance Standards Program
Online Resource Center

The National Public Health Performance Standards Program (NPHPSP) Online Resource Center is the only collection of resources designed to help public health systems and boards of health improve their performance related to the Essential Public Health Services (Essential Services) and the Model Standards. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide funding for this site.


The Public Health Foundation (PHF) recently enhanced the NPHPSP Online Resource Center with new ways to narrow down search results to make it easier to find resources. Learn more about out the new features added and the search categories.

Tools and Resources for Performance Improvement

Performance improvement naturally follows the completion of the NPHPSP performance assessment report. This dynamic and searchable online resource center of 500+ resources provides the information you need to explore root causes, determine priorities, and organize for and develop improvement plans. After selecting one or more EPHS, Model Standards, or other areas for improvement, site users can conduct a targeted search to locate specific resources.
