Many grantees, especially smaller, non-academic organizations, often lack evaluation experience but are required to submit evaluation plans to foundations that include outcome measures and monitoring activities.
Based on the final reports from its early grantees, the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) concluded that grantees would benefit from formal technical assistance in the area of evaluation. Specifically, staff members felt that grantees would benefit from learning how to create a program logic model; develop a related set of process and outcome measures; and collect and analyze the necessary data. NYSHealth awarded a grant to the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) to implement this technical assistance to Foundation grantees.
