Development of State Flex Program Logic Models and Related Toolkit
Project staff will work with the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC) to conduct the logic modeling process in one additional state, Kansas, thereby completing the process of training TASC staff in the use of the Flex Program Logic Model (PLM). After final review, the PLM Toolkit will be posted to the Flex Monitoring Team web site early in 2006. Project staff will finalize plans to pass responsibility for the provision of Flex PLM technical assistance to TASC at the beginning of Year 4 (2006-07) of the grant, and prepare recommendations for the federal Office of Rural Health Policy on the use of the Flex PLM in the Flex Grant process as well as in the evaluation of the Flex Program.
Creating Program Logic Models: A Toolkit for State Flex Programs
Maine Rural Health Research Center
This is a tool for planning, managing, reporting on, and assessing Flex Program goals, activities, and accomplishments; assistance in identifying/defining measurable outcomes; information linking state-level Flex Program strategies to measurable outcomes; and a consistent program-reporting framework to share results internally and externally.
