Federal Grant Development: Evidence-Based Programming


Evidence-Based Programming
Session 6 of the Federal Grant Development Series

More and more grants are asking questions about how you know the services you provide will have the impact you claim will result. These questions may be worded similar to this: What is the evidence-level of your program, model, or services? Is there research or other evidence demonstrating that this program can be successful when implemented in accordance with the program model on which it is based? What documentation do you have of your evidence-based or evidence-informed approach? This session will not only describe the most commonly used five-tiered evidence levels, it will also provide insight on how to describe programs which may use research or evidence to guide its programming but do not use a specific research or evidence-based model with validity.

Federal Grant Development Training Series

Most people consider federal grant training to be a more advanced form of grant writing and management. We at Assel Grant Services do a lot of work with federal grants and we believe that federal grants share a lot of characteristics with significant federal grants. That said, there are a lot of nuances unique to federal grants to learn. This professional development series is designed to help nonprofit professionals who have never written a federal grant be as prepared to step through the federal grant pre-award and post-award process for the first time with confidence.

These sessions are designed to support nonprofit professionals before and during their first federal grant. If you don’t tune in before your first opportunity comes out, this series can be managed during a typical six to eight-week federal grant funding cycle.

If you would like to arrange a custom scheduled training for your organization, please email us to speak to one of our Training staff. If you would like information about all our upcoming trainings, please subscribe to our monthly Training Newsletter!
