The Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) is an independent, USmarker not-for-profit accrediting body and is an alternative to the Joint Commission. It is the first body to be created in the US for assessing community-based health care organizations.

CHAP was created in 1965 as a joint venture between the American Public Health Association and the National League for Nursing (NLN). CHAP became a separately incorporated, non-profit subsidiary of the NLN in 1988, under the CHAP name. In 1992, CHAP was granted "deeming authority" for home care by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In 1999 it received deeming authority for hospices. In 2001, it became an independent, non-profit corporation.
