  1. State of Washington staff will be trained on how to conduct DDCAT and CFIR Index assessments by co-PI (McGovern). Two-person teams will schedule and conduct each DDCAT assessment. Additional training or consultation will help answer questions identified at the site visits. Program characteristics are collected during the DDCAT assessments
  2. Data will be collected by the state of Washington staff and NIATx coaches using standardized instruments for each program participating in the study
  3. NIATx Fidelity scoring (Total and 7 subscale scores are organized by preparation, implementation and sustainment phases) will be assessed by two person teams at the end of the active implementation period for each program. Data sources will include a composite of interviews, review of walk-through results, change project forms, coach notes and sustainability plans
