Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $499,826)

The proposed evaluability assessment and baseline study includes the development of a grantee profile/baseline report; web surveys; site visits with in-depth interviews and focus groups; and documentation and assessment of TTA delivered to the sites. The Capacity and Network Survey will gather information on network- and capacity-building activities of grantees and their partners, while the Stakeholder Survey will provide baseline information on perceptions of the current provision of trauma-informed services and interventions. Web surveys will be analyzed using social network analysis, and indices regarding within- and cross-site stakeholder perceptions of service provision and TTA needs associated with collective healing. Interviews with grantees and their partners will gather in-depth knowledge about the development of the CHP and assess capacity for information collection, data management, and analysis. Focus groups will provide the opportunity to learn from the experiences and perspectives of community members and law enforcement serving those communities. Obtaining a deepened understanding of the CHP and the individuals’ impacts by the CHP will inform the planning of a full evaluation.
