The logic model is a tool used to demonstrate how and why your program will work. It illustrates what will be accomplished and how your grant proposal will reach the goals and objectives designed in your program. The logic model must communicate specific resources, measurable action oriented outcomes with a realistic timeline.
Logic models may be created in several ways. A template can be downloaded and used as a guide to create the logic model for the evaluation section ofyour proposal. A Google search of Logic Model Templates provides several models to review. Beautiful charts of all shapes and forms give a full picture of the wide range of options to design the logic model itself.
Several sites also include detailed guidelines for development of the logic model. Samples are provided in chart form. If the grant development team includes a professional evaluator or university research staff as part of the evaluation team they will develop the logic model and incorporate all of the elements to show success. The evaluator may take the lead in writing the evaluation/logic model section of the grant.
