An Assessment of the Sustainability and Impact of Community Coalitions once Federal Funding has Expired. 5. Findings


The following sections build on the literature review and conceptual framework of coalition sustainability by describing the most salient findings from the survey, key informant interviews, and site visits with the former HCAP community coalitions. We begin with a discussion of our findings related to the primary research question: How many coalitions funded under HCAP are still in existence? Next, we discuss the coalition characteristics associated with sustainability, including coalition membership, structure, vision, and funding. Finally, we present results examining how coalitions have evolved and coalition impacts and lessons learned by coalition staff over time. Case study reports from the site visits and topline survey results are presented as Appendices.
