Strategies for Sustainability Online toolkit



Primary Competency

Policy Development/Program Planning Skills

Sustainability encompasses much more than replacing an existing funding stream. Broadly speaking, sustainability refers to the capacity (e.g., resources and infrastructure) to maintain a program or service at a desired level to achieve specific outcomes or results.

Taking a comprehensive view of sustainability includes looking at financial needs and opportunities; considering options for delivery modifications or new partnerships; and policy, systems, and environmental change strategies.

Developing a sustainability plan can help solidify your organization or program’s goals and get buy-in from critical stakeholders and decision makers. A sustainability plan helps define short and long-term goals related to funding development, policy change strategies, and partnership building.

This online toolkit includes resources from the Strategies for Sustainability workshop offered to CCPD/HDGP grantees in April 2018, and additional tools and templates to support sustainability planning.
