to all the communities that submitted proposals for the Pathways Forward Challenge.



Follow-Up Interviews | ARPIL 16-24

After an initial review of the proposals, NCEH may conduct follow-up interviews with some applicant communities as part of the assessment process via phone or video conference.

Pathways Forward Communities Announced | MAY

Up to five communities will be selected to participate in the Pathways Forward Challenge. These communities will be announced in May 2019 and will work to implement their ideas over the project period, ending in December 2021. Between the announcement of Pathways Forward sites in May and the official launch in June, selected sites will work to finalize partnerships and other key stakeholder decisions (e.g. onboarding staff). NCEH staff will facilitate opportunities for Pathways Forward communities to connect virtually during this time. Pathways Forward communities should be ready to begin implementing their project activities no later than July 2019.


Launch Event & Workshop | JUNE 19-21

Representatives from selected Pathways Forward communities will attend an in-person launch event and workshop June 19-21. Overarching goals of the launch event are to build relationships with other Pathways Forward communities and NCEH staff, share systems change ideas, work through challenges, and refine action plans. More details on the launch event and workshop are forthcoming.
