Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Regional Networks RFP:

Q: How is a “region” defined?
A: A region must comprise a contiguous sub-state, state or multi-state geographic area in the United States.

Q: Is a Regional Network intended to support service-learning?
A: Regional Networks are not designed solely to support service-learning. We expect Regional Networks to support a full range of community-campus partnership strategies, including but not limited to service-learning. The CCPH Regional Networks are intended to support and invigorate local community-campus partnerships through such activities as convening meetings, facilitating information exchange, providing opportunities for professional development, and expanding membership. The Networks serve as the “eyes, ears, and voice” of community-campus partnerships at all levels, assuring that key national information is disseminated at the local level and local concerns are raised to the national level. Please see the full text of the RFP for a list of “Required Activities” and a list of activities the Regional Networks might pursue.

Q: Are CCPH members the only ones eligible to apply to become a Regional Network?
A: All applicants must include at least one CCPH member in the leadership structure of the proposed Regional Network to be eligible.

Q: Can a purely academic partnership apply to become a Regional Network?
A: A Regional Network must have a leadership structure comprised of CCPH members and include individuals from both academic and community settings.

A: As a member you can access the CCPH online membership directory at There you can conduct searches by state and other criteria. You will need your assigned username and password to login. If you do not have this information, please email me at and I would be happy to send it to you.

Q: Can I find out if others are planning to apply from my region?
