Local Health Department Evaluation
· Impact Outcome Evaluation
Local Health Departments all over California participate in the Impact Outcome Evaluation project. This project helps identify successful nutrition education interventions and potential best practices, while providing direction for program improvement. Projects receiving over $350,000 annually must participate in IOE.
· Policy, System, and Environment (PSE) Evaluation
With passage of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act, work on changing policies, systems, and environments (PSE) to support healthy eating, physical activity, and obesity prevention is allowed with SNAP-Ed funds. Local health departments have identified specific PSE approaches to support their SNAP-Ed work. These projects are evaluated using the RE-AIM (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance) framework to assess and monitor PSE changes across California and to encourage reflection and improvement of these approaches by LHDs.
· Activity Tracking Form
The Activity Tracking Form (ATF) is a website used to report the events your organization conducts as part of your Integrated Work Plan. The ATF serves two functions: 1) allows your organization and your Project Officer to track and compile events by type of activity and reach and 2) allows the SNAP-Ed program to compile the required annual reports to the USDA and the State.
