SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Description: The evaluation will involve seven data collection requests:

  • Four Site Visit Discussion Guides: To systematically document the approaches and strategies used by the first two cohorts of CWCC grantees (FY18 and FY19 awardees), the evaluation team will conduct initial and follow-up interviews with: (1) Project Directors from Lead Grantee organizations and Leaders from partner organizations, and (2) staff from the lead and partner organizations. These interviews will take place during site visits. Each grantee will participate in four site visits.
  • Survey Invitee Template: The evaluation team will ask the Project Director of each CWCC grant to fill out a Survey Invitee Template to gather contact information for leaders and staff from lead and partner organizations who the evaluation team will invite to complete the Collaboration Survey (see below).
  • Collaboration Survey: This electronic survey will document perceptions that leaders and staff from the CWCC lead and partner organizations have regarding their organizational/group processes, implementation activities, and progress towards goals. This survey will be administered to staff at all grantee and partner organizations on an annual basis during each cohort's grant period.
  • Site Visit Planning Template: Each Project Director (or their designee) will complete a Site Visit Planning Template to schedule site visit activities prior to each annual site visit.

Respondents: Leadership and staff from CWCC lead (grantee) organizations and from partner organizations.
