Most community action plans can benefit from recruiting partners—individuals or organization that might help with the solution to the public-health issue. These partners may have money, special tools or skills, and other resources.
Create a list of at least ten local partners / stakeholders who might be willing to help you implement or develop your own Community Action Plan. Remember, a stakeholder is a person with an interest or concern in something. For each potential partner include all of the following information:
1. the potential partner’s name,
2. comprehensive contact information (job title, address, phone, website, and any assistants’ names),
3. a short explanation of why you think he/she/it would be useful to your project, and
4. why you think that particular partner might be interested in joining your effort—that is, what is the benefit to the partner in doing so?
Your partners could come from the following (don’t be limited by this list):
· Government officials (state, regional, local or federal)
· Local health/public health department agent(s)
· Non-profits or non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Think broadly. For example, consider national and local organizations (e.g., men and women’s organizations, schools, government-funded services, and volunteer organizations).
· Businesses. Businesses often help fund or implement community projects.
· Schools. Colleges or universities may have grants, special departments, or clubs/organizations.
· Churches or faith-based organizations
