  4. Build relationships and schedule meetings with host agency/community sponsor staff, critical community partners, and family engagement champions to inform site implementation and to serve on the Civic Design Team (CDT). Include FLTI alumni if possible. Invite them to Taste of FLTI meeting.
  5. Define funding sources and create projected local budget (sample budget available).
  6. Consider potential candidates for site coordinator and other support staff to assist with exploratory efforts.
  7. Begin to identify potential facilitators.
