    • Objectives to support each of the three goals, including benefits, challenges, or any additional objectives for consideration.
    • Cross-cutting strategies-collaborations, accountability, and evaluation-to leverage to pursue the goals, including benefits, challenges, or alternative or additional strategies for consideration.
    • General comments, including those that help inform how the COSWD team may direct efforts to achieve its mission over the next five years."
