Questions Asked by Applicants

Q: Do we submit the optional logic model with the pre-application or the full application?

A: You may submit a logic model with both the pre-application and the full application.

Q: Can you clarify when we are supposed to provide the citations for evidence based practice? Is it only in the pre-app or is it in the full app as well?

A: We allow up to one additional page for citations on both the pre-app and the full app. The main question where applicants describe their evidence-based practice is on the pre-app, but there are questions on the full app related to the EBP, for example evaluation and implementing with fidelity to the model.
