In 2014, ARCH, working in collaboration with The Finance Project, selected eight states to receive individualized technical assistance to utilize the Finance Project’s Sustainability Toolkit to develop a comprehensive sustainability plan for their state’s Lifespan Respite activities. The 8 states were: Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Each state convened a sustainability planning team and received email and phone consultation as they proceeded step-by-step through the Sustainability Workbook Modules and shared their experiences.ย
