CPAA Board & Partners

The Cascade Pacific Action Alliance follows a bottoms-up approach for region-wide engagement. Each county hosts a local forum, which identifies local health priorities, adopts shared regional priorities and actions that align with the local action agenda, and implements local action. Key stakeholders from the local community forums communicate the local work and local preferences to the regional level at the CPAA Council, which in turn informs the Board.

There are seven federally recognized Tribes present in the CPAA region: The Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis, Cowlitz Indian Tribe, Nisqually Indian Tribe, Quinault Indian Nation, Shoalwater Bay Tribe, Skokomish Indian Tribe, and Squaxin Island Tribe. To achieve better health, CPAA is seeking to partner with Tribes. This includes learning about and from Tribes, understanding Tribal health priorities, and working together with Tribes to coordinate and advance health improvement strategies.

Based on Request for Proposal responses, 44 partners were selected in addition to the 7 federally recognized tribes in the region. CPAA chose a mix of both traditional and non-traditional partners that cover all 6 project areas and span the 7-county region.
