Spotlight on Assessment Tools

Our evaluation experts have developed tools and resources to support you in becoming more aligned with High Impact Prevention (HIP). Our favorite tools are:

  • HIP Assessment: An online tool to help CBOs assess their program and planning strengths within five areas critical to achieving HIP alignment (PwP interventions, testing strategies, partnerships, linkage, and client centered-ness).
  • FQHC Assessment (PDF): The Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Assessment is designed to help organizations make an informed choice before applying to become a Federally Qualified Health Center. This tool will help you weigh if it is a realistic and/or strategic goal to pursue.
  • RRIT tool (PDF): The Retention Readiness Indicator Tool (RRIT) is a user-friendly tool that helps clinical providers assess their cultural competence and client-centered practices in order to strengthen retention in care.

Once CBOs score themselves, the Community Impact Solutions CBA team will provide CBA recommendations to increase HIP alignment in the lowest scoring areas.
