Question description

Discussion: Need Statement, Goals, and Objectives

This Discussion will be available from Day 1 through Day 7 of this week. You are required to submit your initial post by Day 3. You are encouraged to post early. Once you have submitted your initial post, start responding to your colleagues. You must begin responding to your colleagues by no later than Day 5 and should continue to interact frequently with your colleagues through Day 7. Part of what makes a discussion a discussion and not a lecture is the back-and-forth, in-depth, animated interaction of at least two people. If you start a topic and none of your peers are responding to your post, consider what you can do to get the conversation going. Include something that would elicit further thoughts and different opinions from peers. Validate your opinions with references and links to the sources you used so that your peers can read them for themselves. See your Discussion Rubric in the Course Information Tab for specific grading requirements.

A well-written, funder-focused need statement is the most important element of a proposal. An effective need statement must be supported by data that reflects a thorough and accurate review of the literature and provides proof of need. Objectives are specific and measurable steps that must be achieved if that project is to reach its specified goals.

With this in mind, review your project description in the Week 2 Assignment, the specifics of your selected RFP, and the Chapter 1 information from your course text on the need statement, goals, and objectives. In addition, review the definitions of a goal, objective, outcomes, and outputs in the grant-focused glossaries listed in the Week 1 Learning Resources. Consider feedback to previous Discussions as well as any feedback to assignments that have been returned from your Instructor.

In this Discussion, you will share your project need statement, goals, and objectives. Make sure that all three parts of the posting are aligned to guidelines and requirements contained in the RFP.

By Day 3
