State team will be engaged using a two-phased approach:
·       Phase I: By entering phase one, a state commits to learning the details of this CoIIN. If the state wants to continue in the CoIIN, the state must develop a work plan consistent with the breastfeeding and/or physical activity work streams. The state must recruit a team of at least four people.
·       Phase II: Applications to stay in the project are required. Only states in phase I are eligible to apply for phase II.

Phase I applications must be received by July 10. Contact Sandy Perkins (sandy@asphn.org) for more information.
