In defining the program’s purpose, we’ve answered the questions—do what? for whom? for what outcome? This overview lets us plan what inputs will be necessary for the program.
Inputs are resources dedicated to or consumed by the program.
$$$ Money is a basic input, and will be necessary for some parts of nearly all projects (fees, overhead, salaries). However, it is more useful to list as inputs the things that money will buy (as we’ve done in other listings), than simply money itself.
