EPLS: Getting Ready for Sustainability Planning

Enhanced Prevention Learning Series (EPLS): Getting Ready for Sustainability Planning


Series Overview

This 7-week distance learning series offers participants a unique, interactive experience to explore how to develop a sustainability plan.

Sustainability planning is an intentional process of looking critically at your current prevention infrastructure, processes, and strategies to develop the necessary resources to sustain meaningful prevention outcomes beyond current funding. Sustainability planning involves a series of concrete tasks to create feasible, ongoing support for essential components of your prevention work. Elements of sustainability planning include examining the impact of strategic planning processes, such as SAMSHA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and interventions, priority setting, resource and feasibility analysis, communication planning, and resource and grant development.

This learning series incorporates online consultation, skill-based learning and practice, self-study and reading assignments, group activities, and discussion designed to guide participants through five critical components of sustainability planning. The trainer will demonstrate how to use a set of tools to facilitate a sustainability process with community partners and will coach participants to set actionable steps and timelines to complete a sustainability plan.
