Proposed Project: An Assessment of the Sustainability and Impact of Community Coalitions Once Federal Funding Has Expired—OMB No. 0990-NEW—Assistant Secretary Planning Evaluation (ASPE).

Abstract: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval on a new collection to conduct a survey of community coalitions formerly funded by the Community Access Program (CAP)/Healthy Communities Access Program (HCAP) to learn about their sustainability and impact post-federal funding. ASPE will use the CAP/HCAP experience to examine the long-term sustainability of coalitions that successfully completed for grant funding from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). As part of the study, a one-time, self-administered survey will be administered to the 260 coalitions funded through CAP/HCAP, providing a unique set of data to assess coalition sustainability and the factors that enable and hinder sustainability. The survey will focus on CAP/HCAP coalitions' structure, funding, activities, impact, and outcomes post-funding. The survey design and content is informed by a review of the literature on community coalitions including coalition organization, functions, impact, and sustainability. Results from the survey will also inform the selection of sites for key informant interviews and site visits. Specifically, telephone interviews will occur with a subset of 20 CAP/HCAP coalitions that have been sustained as well as 20 CAP/HCAP coalitions that have not been sustained. The key informant interviews will utilize a structured instrument tailored to the coalitions' experiences. Site visits will be conducted with seven coalitions that were sustained post-funding. Data collection activities will be completed within 18 months of OMB Clearance.
