Creating Program Logic Models: A Toolkit for State Flex Programs


Provide states with a tool for planning, managing, reporting on, and assessing their Flex Program goals, activities, and accomplishments; assistance in identifying and defining measurable outcomes; information linking state-level Flex Program strategies to specific and measurable outcomes; and a consistent program-reporting framework to convey results to both internal and external stakeholders. The Program Logic Model (PLM) Toolkit is organized according to the steps in the PLM development process and guides the user through each section. Included in the Toolkit is an overview of PLMs, their component parts, and the application of the PLM framework to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Flex Program. The bulk of the Toolkit provides a step-by-step approach to developing a Program Logic Model. The final section of the Toolkit lists resources for additional information on PLMs. Report produced by the Flex Monitoring Project, funded by the Office of Rural Health Policy.
