Program evaluation is a component of program design and implementation that is often considered after the program is in place and serving a population. Designing a program with measurable goals in mind creates stronger programming, gives grant proposals a competitive edge, and provides an agency with useful feedback to help achieve its mission. Most importantly, program evaluation allows for program tweaking to deliver the best service possible to the client.
