From Partnerships to Policy: Promising Practices for New Food Policy Councils
Funding is critical for any organization or coalition to move plans and ideas into action that affect positive change in their community. As essential as it is, finding funding can feel confusing, challenging, and overwhelming. During this webinar, we will explore common challenges that organizations and coalitions face in identifying and leveraging funding for collaborative health improvement efforts, as well as opportunities and tools to overcome those challenges. Participants will better understand how to create a funding strategy that is intentional and aligned with their partnerships and priorities.
Gain a deeper understanding of collaboration! From newbies to seasoned coalition leaders, everyone will hear about new ideas, the key reasons behind why people participate in community coalitions, how to recruit potential members, and most importantly how to keep them engaged. You’ll get ideas to broaden coalition membership while also recognizing the importance of aligning current collaborative efforts with new partners to accomplish overall goals.
