Literature Review: Developing a Conceptual Framework to Assess the Sustainability of Community Coalitions Post-Federal Funding. Chapter Five: A Conceptual Framework to Assess the Sustainability of Community Coalitions Once Initial Federal Funding has Expired

01/07/2011

The previous chapters have explored the literature on the construct and functions of community coalitions, the impacts and outcomes of their activities, and their sustainability. The literature has demonstrated that—because community coalitions are diverse, with varied characteristics, goals, and outcomes—it is difficult to determine whether, how, and what should be sustained (e.g., the coalition’s membership, goals, activities, etc.). Researchers have constructed definitions of sustainability, and applied conceptual frameworks that highlight different components. Building on the information presented in the previous chapters, Chapter Five presents a conceptual framework for assessing the sustainability of community coalitions once initial federal funding has expired. This chapter will provide the following:

  1. A definition of sustainability in community coalitions
  2. A conceptual framework that can be used to assess sustainability in community coalitions
  3. Key measures that can be used to assess the sustainability of community coalitions
