Chapter Ten
QUESTION #10: If the Program Is
Successful, How Will It Be Sustained?
(Sustain)
Unfortunately, even high quality prevention programs are often not continued beyond their initial funding. This question can help you sustain your program or strategy.
Definition of Sustainability
Sustainability is the continuation of a program after the initial funding has ended. Programs are more likely to survive if they adapt themselves to fit the needs of the environment and the needs of their host organizations, which is consistent with the GTO-04 process.Much of the literature on sustainability has been based on what happens after the initial external (or internal) funding of a program ends. If a program was begun with external funding, what happens after the funding is over? Does the program end when the funding ends? There are three general approaches:
1. Obtain new external funding to continue the program (e.g., obtain new grant funding).
2. Encourage the host organization or community to put its own resources into continuing the program (e.g., a foundation-funded, school-based mentoring program gets “picked up” by the school district).
3. Convince state, county, or city agencies to include the program in “on-going” public funding (e.g., block grants, state agency funding streams).

Not all programs should be sustained. Situations, personnel, and needs may change. Perhaps a more effective or more suitable program is available, the program was not effective, or the original need no longer exists. In other words, the program should warrant being sustained. The GTO-04 process should help you determine whether the program is worth sustaining.
