Sustainability Planning

The Dibble Institute is pleased to consult with you as you write your grant and after it has been awarded strategies to sustain your activities over time.

We have demonstrated over nine years of a federal grant, how to bring relationship education cost-effectively to large numbers of youth by using existing community systems.

Power to Decide, previously the National Campaign to Avoid Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, offers a free

TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION POTENTIAL SAVINGS CALCULATOR. 

This tool allows you to determine the potential cost savings of your project based on your county or the number of teen births in your area.

The Hamilton Project created the Vitality Index, which measures the economic and social well-being of a place.

INTERACTIVE EXPLORATION OF THE GEOGRAPHY OF PROSPERITY.

The index combines all measures of median household income, poverty rate, unemployment rate, prime-age employment-to-population ratio, housing vacancy rate, and life expectancy.

We can also help you develop your sustainability plans by identifying alternative funding streams that support relationship education beyond your grant. For instance, Love Notes has been implemented using Rape Prevention Education funding. And, in some jurisdictions Love Notes is funded for mental health prevention and early intervention.

Please email Kay Reed, Executive Director, at kayreed @ DibbleInstitute.org to set up a time to consult.
