Cross-Site Projects

Cross-site projects are those undertaken by NNIP with the participation of multiple partners. Some initiatives are designed to engage all of the local partners and strengthen the network as a whole. In others, a few partners undertake a comparable set of tasks to advance an agenda in their own community. Throughout the initiative partners share their successes and challenges and their experiences are woven together in a summary report to offer lessons for other localities and national policy.
