I work as a Community Health Worker for a non-profit organization and wanted to use the Action Plan as a template. I also frequently see other tools I would like to use. I noticed the works on this site are licensed according to the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License. Does this allow for my use and dissemination to the internal workgroup? According to what I read it seems that it would not pose an issue but due to my position being a paid one, I wanted to be on the safe side. Please advise.

   Thanks for writing to us, and for your question about using our materials. We appreciate your thoughtfulness here.   
   The Community Tool Box does in fact have a Use Policy, at It’s on a menu tab at the bottom of our home page, though granted one might have to look a bit for it. But as we understand your intended use, it would fall under paragraph #2 in that policy, which means you would be free to use and copy materials for non-commercial use within your internal workgroup.
    Please do credit us when you use our materials.  In this case, something like “Adapted from the Community Tool Box,, by permission” should be fine.
    We hope this is helpful to you.  Thanks again for being in touch, and all best wishes for continued success in your important work.
