Members learn from one another in multiple forums and work together to advance the spread of CRPs.

The Collaborative achieves many of its outcomes through its strong, action-oriented committees. Members produce CRP best practice tools and resources, training curricula, on-site services, shared learning experiences, CRP innovations, policy recommendations, and research.
