Why All the Excitement About Logic Models? Using Logic Models for Program Planning & Evaluation for Tribal Agencies

Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Secure and sustainable funding is crucial for cancer control programming to flourish. Logic models can help convey to funders "why your program is important, and the logic behind why you expect it to be effective" and successful.

This National Cancer Control Month, we invite past, current and future tribal grantees to our introductory webinar on how to prepare successful grant proposals using logic models. This webinar is brought to you in response to the evaluation of the American Indian Alaska Native Cancer Summit in 2016, which found that tribes seek more technical assistance on grant writing and capacity building. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Explain the importance of creating specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound (SMART) objectives and logic modeling 
  2. Describe how to develop logic models for programs implemented by your tribal agency
  3. Illustrate the application of logic models in planning and evaluation
  4. Locate resources for creating logic models


This webinar is best for tribal grantees seeking supplemental and diversified funding.
