Sustainability Planning Learning Collaborative Meeting

April 21, 2017
Launch of the Sustainability Learning Collaborative

ARCH staff conducted a survey to determine the most pressing issues in sustainability planning among Lifespan Respite grantees and partners, and generated a summary of key topics from the survey findings. The key topics list was presented at the launch of Sustainability Learning Collaborative to generate discussion about content and format for collaborative meetings going forward.

The Learning Collaborative leaders were introduced to the group.ย  These four leaders had participated as Exemplar States in the ARCH/Finance Project Sustainability Planning Initiative and had made significant progress in developing a sustainability plan for their state’s lifespan respite grant projects.
