Research This research project seeks to understand how the City of Allen can increase efficiency and utility for the residents of Allen through coordination and collaboration among social service nonprofit agencies serving this community. Scholars find that collaborative governance and coordination between local governments and nonprofits are essential in response to complex social issues (Conforth, Hayes and Vangen 2014; Agronaff and McGuire, 2001; and Provan and Milward, 2001). Evidence finds that this form of collaboration produces greater knowledge on how to effectively respond to the needs of the community and improves services for the target population (Scott and Thomas 2017). Conforth, Hayes and Vangen (2014) suggest a critical community issue can inspire collaboration. UNT’s Department of Public Administration will: f.
