This toolbox is designed to help public health practitioners and community-based organizations apply evidence-based intervention strategies from the Community Preventive Services Task Force. The Community Guide Toolbox contains more than twenty tools for putting the recommendations found in The Community Guide into practice. These tools can help public health professionals conduct assessments and evaluations, engage stakeholders, execute a project plan, and create successful community-based programs. The Toolbox is made up of five sections, each focusing on one of the steps involved in developing an intervention: Assess and Evaluate; Plan an Intervention; Engage stakeholders; Implementation; and Sustainable Programs.
