You will need to prioritize your decisions and recommendations based on the community assessment data. This is especially true if your list of recommendations is lengthy or costly. Provide your rationale for prioritizing one recommendation over another. Some reasons you might give include:

  • It can be implemented more easily.
  • It addresses a greater need.
  • It responds to a trend that, in the next few years, will impact the program. By putting the recommendation into place now, your program will be prepared.It involves working with a community partner and the time is right for you to collaborate due to leadership, funding, or shared mission.
  • By partnering now, you can maximize your resources and offer improved service delivery to families and children.
