Finding Partners

Option #1: Finding Partners
Most community action plans can benefit from recruiting partners—individuals or organizations 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:
1. the potential partner’s name,
2. comprehensive contact information (job title, address, phone, website, and any assistants’
3. a short explanation of why you think the partner or stakeholder would be useful to your project,
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)

national and local organizations (e.g., men and women’s organizations, schools, governmentfunded services, and volunteer organizations).
Businesses often help fund or implement community projects.
Colleges or universities may have grants, special departments, or clubs/organizations.
Churches or faith-based organizations
