Local Capacity Initiative Facilitated Discussion and Capacity Assessment Tool: Facilitator's Manual
The purpose of this manual, prepared by Advancing Partners & Communities with support from the Health Policy Project, is to help determine technical assistance needs and to conduct an assessment of an organization’s policy, advocacy, and organizational systems capacity. The assessment consists of a facilitated self-assessment as well as optional stakeholder interviews. The tool is divided into five major sections (LCI outcome areas); four of these areas focus on critical elements for advocacy and one focuses on overall organizational capacity. Additionally, there are in-depth domains associated with each larger outcome, which can be used to further review capacity.

Policy Advocacy Rapid Assessment Tool for CSOs
This tool is used to facilitate an overarching conversation with small to medium sized CSO regarding policy advocacy capacity and priorities. The tool addresses six major topics and seven cross cutting themes related to policy advocacy. Findings identified by this conversation can be used to design capacity development strategies.
