IHP 670 Module Five Project Preparation Guidelines and Rubric

Overview

Thus far, you have identified a health or healthcare problem and completed your needs assessment for this program. You decided to use the logic model for your program planning and have

Now, you must plan the budget for your program. Budgeting is the process of creating a plan that shows when the money will be spent, why it will be spent, and whether it will be covered by

income from a funding source. No matter what the need for a program is, it requires a well-planned budget. Without a well-estimated, pre-approved budget, no program can move forward.

In this assignment, you will fill in the Proposed Program Budget Template provided for your program with appropriate figures and then give the rationale for your budget estimations. Before

your program plan can be implemented, your senior management needs to know the costs associated with the in-house and acquired resources for the first 12 months of your program, the

costs incurred once, and the ongoing expenses. They also need you to determine the expected sources of program income, which may include revenue from billing, savings, donations, or grant

funding, along with the amount expected from each source. You will provide the estimated program budget to your senior management to help them make financial decisions related to your

program.
