Environment Stewardship Focus Area: Instrument Packets for Pilot Year 1

The Environment Stewardship Focus Area refers to unmet energy-efficiency needs and environmental needs within communities.

There are five packets in the Environment Stewardship Focus Area. Each packet consists of one or more national performance measures and includes:

  • Description of the national performance measure(s) covered by the packet
  • Definitions of key terms
  • Considerations for measuring the national performance measure(s)
  • Data collection challenges and strategies
  • Data collection instrument(s)
  • Instructions for using the instrument(s)

One packet includes an aligned output and outcome. Four packets include outputs only. Remember to choose an intermediate outcome that aligns with each output and supports your service activity.

All packets are compatible with Adobe Reader.
