In This Chapter
Starting out with a purpose statement
Documenting your goals, objectives, and implementation plans
Developing a Logic Model to connect the dots
Proving accountability with an evaluation plan
The program design section of the grant application narrative is by far the most important narrative section in your grant proposal. It’s the section that divides the “I don’t have a clue” grant writers from the “I have this in the bag” grant writers. The coaching and examples in this chapter show you how to write an award-winning program design section that’s all about your vision — as in the positive changes you’ll bring about when you win that grant award!
Surveying the Components of a Good Program Design Section
The program design section is where you roll out all the promising details about what will happen when the bucks are in place to actually create, implement, and evaluate your grant-funded program. It’s sort of like a road map that shows the funder how your project will be implemented.
