Improve Your Logic Model: 5 Sources to Help

logic model, grant writing

Several weeks ago I wrote about the function of the logic model (also known as the logical framework, theory of change, or program matrix) in a grant application. A logic model is used to demonstrate how the flow of resources and processes will produce the desired program results. It’s your project’s vision at a glance, allowing you and your team to stay on track and plan for the future, not to mention measure and evaluate performance.

Here are five useful resources on logic models, any of which can serve as a starting point:

  1. W.K. Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide: One of the best resources on the many uses and types of logic models. Clear and thorough.
  2. Innovation Network Logic Model Workbook: A do-it-yourself guide to the concepts and functions of the logic model.
  3. The HUD Partnership Center’s Capacity Building Workshop Series: Evaluation Strategies and Logic Model Module: A course on logic diagrams that includes sidebars, summaries, case studies, and plenty of worksheets.
  4. Comprehensive Community Initiatives: Using a Logic Model: A look at the topic from the vantage point of collaborative CCIs.
  5. University of Wisconsin - Extension: Evaluation Logic Model Bibliography: More than 60 resources on logic models, some with hyperlinks.
