The purpose of this brief is to present lessons learned from the directors of OSEP-funded model demonstration projects on  identifying the conditions, at potential demonstration sites, likely to promote or hinder the implementation of model demonstration projects. The most important indicators of site capacity necessary for successful model demonstration implementation are discussed. Resources for assessing site capacity for model demonstration are included in an appendix.
