Meeting Details 

The purpose of this meeting is for CBAC members and the Partnerships to work together to draft parameters for Year 4 based on the CBAC’s draft Year 4 goals (see below). We will also discuss evaluation activities. 

Draft Year 4 Goals:

  1. Partnerships to fully complete three years of evaluation. Each Partnership is at a different stage of implementation, so some may benefit from this extra time. Ideally, this would include at least 12 months of follow-up data; more specific details may be determined as additional follow-up information is received from HRiA.

  2. Allow time to work with families that Partnerships may not be working with or may be working with in different ways beyond Year 4. For example: transitioning families to lesser services, different providers, or successfully out of the program.

  3. Maximize learning within and across Partnerships, including each Partnership’s ability to tell the story of their model.

  4. Work with Partnerships to determine ways to continue their models after year 4 Community Benefits funding ends.
