This tip sheet is a useful quick reference for YARG grantees considering how to sustain their programs beyond the grant. It begins with the reminder that the time to start this all-important process is Day One.

It follows up with a checklist of suggestions and action items that guide program staff through planning and determining what to sustain, instituting a sustainability culture to make it an everyday practice throughout an organization, engaging partnerships in the effort, and executing the plan. Several resources are also described that can be accessed for more detailed information.
