Developing a logic
model is a useful way to illustrate how a project's performance measures
are related to its specific problems, goals and objectives, and design.
OJJDP's grant solicitations include logic models that are specific to
the grant program. Some solicitations have multiple logic models to address
different activities or focus areas. OJJDP logic models are designed
to help applicants select the most relevant performance measures for
their program. By comparing the applicant's logic model with OJJDP's
logic model for the program under which the application is being made,
the applicant can:
- ensure that the applicant's goals correspond with OJJDP's.
- determine the federal program area, purpose area, or other
subcategory to which the applicant's program should be assigned.
- select indicators that will provide useful performance data
for the applicant's program.
