The national organizations work together to coordinate strategies and technical assistance to maximize collective impact, increase national and local awareness of community health work, and ensure that identified communities are able to increase their capacity and achieve sustainable improvements that will continue after the program funding ends.

The five organizations work together under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Community Health program to provide financial resources, guidance, training, tools, and other assistance to local coalitions interested in creating communities where people can achieve optimal health through developing their capacity to implement policy, systems, and environmental improvements.
