Building Sustainability in Demonstration Projects for Children, Youth, and Families [open pdf - 505KB]
"This toolkit is designed to provide ideas and linkages to other resources that will enable demonstration sites to build on their success and sustain effective efforts beyond the life of the grant. It offers case study examples and a variety of tools communities may want to use as they consider plans for sustaining, replicating or 'scaling-up' reform efforts. This toolkit is one of several resources developed to strengthen and sustain the capacity of OJJDP [Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention] sites served by SITTAP [Systems Improvement Training and Technical Assistance Project] to achieve and sustain their systems reform goals and effectively address the related challenges. Other toolkits will address topics such as: Building Community Partnerships; Using Data Effectively; and Family-Centered, Culturally Competent Partnerships. These resources are also designed to educate and inform other communities and the field about how they can more effectively pursue community-based systems reform."
