SCALE is an exciting opportunity, made available by the generous support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, for communities in the United States to substantially accelerate their health improvement journey. SCALE recognizes and values that communities hold the solutions to improve their health. Therefore, the goal of SCALE is to equip communities with skills and resources to unlock their potential and achieve significant results.

Twenty pacesetter communities will be selected to participate in SCALE, a 20-month intensive “learning and doing” program designed to assist communities to achieve unprecedented results in improving the health and well-being of people, populations and the community-at-large. SCALE will support communities in their efforts to address factors that contribute to health, lead complex change, and advance equity. 

Up to 10 additional mentor communities will serve as part of the technical assistance team in the SCALE initiative. Mentors will be serving within the context of an “all teach, all learn” approach that acknowledges that everyone has the opportunity to learn from one another in an effective transformation process.
