A "logic model" is used by grant writers to paint a picture of how an organization's proposed program will work. Many funders want grants to have a logic model in the program design (or methods) section. But it can also be used in other sections, such as the evaluation section.
The logic model is simply a chart that includes the key elements of a proposed program. It includes inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes, and impacts.
The W.K Kellogg foundation has a free publication, the Logic Model Development Guide, that provides examples of types and styles of logic models.
