An Assessment of the Sustainability and Impact of Community Coalitions once Federal Funding has Expired. 3. Conceptual Framework for Assessing Community Coalition Sustainability


The section of this report summarizes key findings from an extensive literature review on community coalition sustainability that identified how researchers, policy makers, and practitioners have defined and measured sustainability for community coalitions (NORC, 2010). The findings from the literature review were synthesized to develop operational definitions for the key concepts and a conceptual framework to assess the sustainability of community coalitions.
