You can assume that the program is already funded. You are seeking $50,000 for the evaluation of the program. Keep this relatively low funding amount in mind when planning the feasibility of your plan. You cannot afford a plan for a 20-year evaluation that follows clients throughout their lives.
Please create a word document answering the following questions
Using your logic model, develop a needs assessment, process, or outcome evaluation plan that explains each area of evaluations adequately within the Process of Evaluation Steps:
1. Engage stakeholders
2. Describe the program
3. Focus the evaluation
4. Gather credible evidence
5. Justify conclusions
6. Ensure usage and share lessons learned
