Question 3: Theory of Change
Why does your community need the intervention you propose? 

Question 4: Congregational Strengths
Why do you believe that your congregation is the group to implement the proposed intervention?

Question 5: Project Description

Question 6: Evaluation
How will you assess effectiveness?
