This brief and practical text is a perfect supplement for program planning and evaluation courses. Program planning, grant writing and program evaluation are discussed, with emphasis on the inter-relationship between these components and how each component emphasizes the others. Readers will learn the development and the implementation of grant proposals, program evaluation plans, data collection and analysis, and report writing.
