STOP Implementation Planning: A Monthly At-A-Glance Guide (February 2018): The Monthly At-A-Glance Guide offers an overview, action steps, and suggestions that can assist and help pace the STOP Grant Program Administrator’s office during the STOP Implementation Planning process. Sharing this “at-a-glance” overview with office leadership, STOP planning team members and other key partners, stakeholders, and communities is encouraged. It can quickly provide them with an understanding of the STOP implementation planning process, what is expected, and an idea of the time and resources needed to comply with Federal requirements and accomplish STOP program goals.
