Using Logic Models for Planning Primary Prevention Programs


Recipients of Rape Prevention Education funds administered by the California Department of Public Health are required to develop an Action Plan or Logic Model as part of each grantee’s planning process for primary prevention programs.  On January 28, 2009, CALCASA provided a web conference on using logic models as a tool for program planning in order to provide support for this requirement.
