Assessing Program Impact through Cost Analysis - A Conversation with Practitioners

Assessing Program Impact through Cost Analysis - A Conversation with Practitioners

Cost Analysis adds to the important anecdotal stories about the power and value of prevention programming by helping us quantify the efficiency and impact of that programming in economic terms. Many of you are aware that FRIENDS has worked with the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research to create tools and guidance to engage in cost analysis. This call is the latest installment in our effort to help folks get the most from these tools. 

Programs have a strong desire to communicate the benefits of the services they provide to families in ways that speak to policy makers, funders and other stake holders. Cost Analysis can be a powerful resource towards addressing that need. Please invite local service providers who may benefit from exploring cost analysis. You may forward this registration information to locally funded program coordinators.
