NEP Keys To Success
Communication & Engagement
Residents are key to making the NEP work. It's important they know why the NEP is coming to your community, the goals of the NEP -- and how they can help it succeed.
This "resident buy-in" will help ensure the program achieves the goals that have been established.
Determine how resident leadership will be developed and maintained. Involve residents from the focus area on the Steering Committee and subcommittees.
Develop a focused outreach plan to engage other residents from your community. This plan can include:
- Door hangers
- E-mail lists
- Phone trees
