Tier II Affiliated States
As of May 2013, the Tier II affiliated states with NCSC include Arkansas, California, Delaware, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, and the US Virgin Islands. If NCSC products and processes are to be sustainable past the grant life, other states must be able to implement them without intensive support from project staff. Tier II states will provide usability and sustainability tests to refine our products before releasing them for broad dissemination in 2015. These states must agree to implement the final NCSC resources into their current training and dissemination mechanisms. They will provide feedback on usability and outcomes using NCSC provided tools and protocols for each product and process that we release for Tier II use.
