Evaluation of the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) Teams Pilot: Final Report. Addendum to the Executive Summary: Summary of SC2 Team Post-Study Implementation Changes


In the spring of 2014, a second round of SC2 teams were deployed in seven U.S. cities: St. Louis, MO; Gary, IN; Flint, MI; Brownsville, TX; Rockford, IL; Macon, GA; and Rocky Mount, NC. The SC2 Council and its partner agencies implemented a number of the changes recommended in this report in preparation for this second round of implementation. These changes included:

  • Refining the SC2 city application and selection process,
  • More clearly defining SC2 team member roles,
  • Developing and implementing SC2 team exit strategies, and
  • Extending the reach of lessons learned from the SC2 pilot.

The following sub-sections provide short summaries of each these changes.
