RTI International leading, SSTI supporting Build Back Better Regional Challenge Community of Practice

September 08, 2022

The nonprofit research institute, RTI International, has been named the grant winner to coordinate and lead a Community of Practice (CoP) for the Build Back Better Regional Challenge’s 60 finalist coalitions. While the 21 awardees of the challenge will go on to build out their proposed programs, the CoP is intended to build long-term connections among all 60 coalition finalists, which were awarded from 529 applications. SSTI is excited to be a sub-awardee on the CoP working with RTI.

The Build Back Better Regional Challenge CoP will work to create inter-regional ties between coalitions and foster collaborative, professional relationships among coalition leaders.

RTI’s Sara Lawrence, who has more than 20 years of experience collaborating with a range of partners in the field, will lead a team of subject-matter experts in organizing the CoP.
