•   Once a national scorecard framework is established (or while it is being established), what mechanisms can be used by local leaders to engage their communities in tailoring the scorecard to their specific circumstances?

•   How will community scorecards help the federal government to tailor their approaches and policies to increase national resilience?

 

(2)   Ensure scorecard implementation in the short and long term

•   What incentives can be used by local leaders to encourage citizens, neighborhoods, communities to employ the scorecard and become engaged in building their own resilience?

•   How can the federal and community coalition roles be linked for best result in scorecard development and implementation?

•   What support will local communities require from state and federal levels in order to be able to use the scorecards effectively?

•   What types of guidance should accompany the scorecard to support its adoption and application by local and regional communities?

•   What are two steps that we can take (at federal, state, or local levels, including the private sector) in the next 3-5 years to move the scorecard forward?
