Course Attribute:
This course is designed to give students skills related to all components of developing and evaluating a proposal for new services. Understanding the implications of different demographic and societal trends on populations will be used to generate ideas for new programming. The primary assignment for this course is the completion of a program proposal. This proposal will include a completed needs analysis, and evidence-based literature review, and an in-depth description for a new occupation-based program of service, including finances, marketing, and program evaluation. Along with learning how to write a successful proposal, students will gain knowledge and skills to obtain funding through a variety of sources. Each student must include a request for funding in the proposal to an appropriate funding agency, (i.e., foundation, grant competition) that is consistent with that funding agency's specifications.
