This paper: (1) provides a description of community mobilization; (2) presents a logic model for planning and decision making used by state-university-community partners; (3) describes training, technical assistance services and implementation; and, (4) describes the evaluation and program improvement activities used to support on-going project development. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2006.
