Application Phases

Phase I 


Coalitions select one substance use issue which they helped address and would like to highlight in this process. They show the comprehensive steps they have taken to reach short, intermediate, or long-term outcomes.  This is presented through CADCA’s 6 products that are used and developed by coalitions to address their community’s specific needs. 

  • Community Assessment
  • Logic Model
  • Strategic and Action Plan
  • Evaluation Plan
  • Evaluation Communication Plan
  • Sustainability Plan 

Phase II 


Coalition’s chosen to move on to phase II will receive personal technical assistance to further strengthen their application.  They transform their work and present it in the form of a 1) a PowerPoint with an overview of the coalition’s community, work and data to support the outcomes and 2) an infographic to illustrate their community-level outcomes.
