A core strategy of the CCHE initiative is to facilitate peer-learning and network-building opportunities among our grantees. In addition, we provide technical assistance and capacity building support to build a community of practice among grantees and project partners to help accelerate innovation and promote equitable solutions that improve climate-resilience, reduce health risks and advance racial justice.
Below are links and resources from CCHE grantee convenings, peer learning sessions and webinars, as well as initiative learning and evaluation.
