Sustainability Plan Guidelines

 

Your resource plan must present what, when, and how something is sustained and maintained now and into the indefinite future. Your plan must be submitted in table format. The Corporation for National and Community Service (n.d.) provides the following list of components that make up a sustainability plan that must be included in your table:

 

1.     Action items: Provide the items that must be addressed or occur. Refer to the following example:

 

My plan for sustaining clean air in my community is to develop an education program about air-pollution-generating activities and their effects, schedule a presentation day and time, invite community participants, and research the effects of air pollution.

 

2.     Order of action items: Discuss how the action items will align or occur. One event or activity must occur before another; thus, order the items into steps similar to the following:

 

1)     Research the effects of air pollution.

2)     Develop an education program.

3)     Schedule a presentation day and time.

4)     Invite the community.

 

3.     Action steps: Explain how you will conduct the action items. How are you going to make each item happen? Include individuals or groups who will help you conduct these items. Use the following as a guide:

 

To schedule a presentation day and time, I will attend next month’s community homeowner’s association (HOA) meeting and request permission from the board to add it to the following month’s agenda.

 

4.     Timeline: Estimate when you will conduct the action items, such as: In months 13, I will complete the research. If an item or activity does not have a specific conclusion time, indicate that it is ongoing.

 

The following is anincomplete sample of how you might incorporate your resource plan into a table format:
