- Cross-sector collaboration can and did occur and was viewed as facilitating the transfer of effective practices.
- Participants perceived the grant activities as helping to build their crosssector professional networks.
- The grant activities were seen as having a positive impact, but the scope of the impact was on a small-scale and generally confined to those directly participating in the activities.
- Perceived structural factors, rather than a lack of interest, inhibited crosssector collaboration—and without formal opportunities, cross-sector collaboration may not have occurred to the extent it did.
- Although there is variation across cities, most had a general climate that was not closed to cross-sector collaboration, although some negative perceptions of the opposite sector remain.
