About US

The Community Coalitions of Idaho (CCI) is a statewide coalition of community coalitions that was organized in early 2009. Participating coalitions represent large and small, urban and rural communities across Idaho. Participating members provide support to one another while sharing ideas, strengths, information, resources, and enthusiasm for healthy communities. Working with partners at the local, state and national levels, CCI strives to facilitate collaboration and address issues with a united voice.

CCI Purpose

CCI provides a forum for community coalitions to:

  • Come together to promote prevention efforts and share ideas;

  • Establish a Strategic Prevention Plan;

  • Develop a state level framework for community coalitions;

  • Seek funding that will accomplish coalition goals;

  • Increase stakeholder involvement of prevention coalitions in Idaho;

  • Increase the number of prevention coalitions in the state;

  • Increase the capacity of community coalitions to implement environmental strategies; and

  • Maintain representation of diverse prevention coalitions and partners.
