We’re defining “partnership” and "coalition" as any multi-sector group of stakeholders working to improve a population-level outcome. Examples include an association working at the neighborhood level to reduce crime, a team working regionally to improve graduation rates, or a partnership working to address lead abatement in one municipality. Participants often come from multiple sectors typically including faith, business, social service organizations, health, media, government, law enforcement, and education. These same multi-sector groups are sometimes also called alliances, or councils, as well as, partnerships and coalitions.
