    Monday, May 23rd and Wednesday, May 25th from 1:00pm-2:30pm ET

    Description:Because many organizations have fewer resources today to serve their population, it isnow more vital than ever for these groups to understand and empirically evaluate the economicimpact of implementing programs and services. Funders of these organizations may also ask for (orrequire) information on how resources are spent and the economic returns for those resourcesexpended. This 2-day workshop focuses on building basic skills in economic evaluation: how toassess program costs, and how to compare those costs to program outcomes through costeffectivenessanalysis (CEA) and benefit-cost analysis (BCA).You will learn:

    • How to prospectively collect and value the resources required to implement programs orpolicies.
    • How to assess the benefits of programs or policies in units appropriate for economicevaluation.
    • How to compare the cost-effectiveness of programs.• How to determine the returns on investment in programs.
    • How to effectively communicate CEA and BCA results to policy makers
