Community Action Team

Role: Initiate systems change based on CRT findings and recommendations.


CATs include a broad-based, multi-partner range of community leaders that represent the diverse ethnic and cultural groups in the community. Ultimately, CATs are composed of two types of members: those with the political will and fiscal resources to create large-scale systems change and those who can define community perspectives on how best to create the desired change in the community.


As with the CRTs, the frequency of CAT meetings, along with their precise structure and processes, must be decided by each community in order to best tailor the work to the specific needs and circumstances of participants.
