In addition to the individual local projects, the program includes two additional contracted components:
  • CAPP Administration, including the following deliverables:
    • Statewide CAPP Needs Assessment and Strategic Plan,
    • Statewide campaign, and
    • CAPP administrative support and technical assistance:
      • Grantee training, technical assistance, and contract monitoring
  • CAPP Evaluation, including the following deliverables:
    • Grantee site evaluations,
    • Grantee fidelity monitoring, and
    • CAPP program evaluation
