Comparing Goals and Objectives

During week 2, you should be writing your grant proposal’s goal statement, two objectives, and project narrative. Use the course lectures, information from the South library, and online research to create these parts of the grant proposal. The goal statement should be one sentence which includes the program’s main activity, the intended outcome, and the specific population served. Each objective should include elements related to time, place, target population, and anticipated increase or decrease. The project narrative should include all the details of the program.

This assignment will help you further understand and evaluate well written goal statements and objectives.

Search online for examples of grant proposals, and compare the goals and objectives of at least three proposals using the following criteria (Tip: Use the term “sample grant proposal” when you conduct your search): How well do the goals and objectives address the identified need Are the objectives measurable in terms of target population, time, place, and anticipated increase or decrease Does each proposal contain concrete ways of measuring progress toward meeting the objectives Are the methods or activities outlined in each proposal likely to result in progress toward the stated objectives Present detailed information related to the four criteria for each proposal in a Microsoft Word table inserted into the assignment. Discuss which proposal is best and why based on your analysis. Discuss why you did not select the other two proposals as best based on your analysis. Submission Details: Cite all sources and provide references in APA format on a separate page. Submit your answers in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document.
