c) Explain any variance from the budget that is not budget neutral.

2) Financial Analysis (developed this week [see attached file for this assignment])

a) Articulate whether the monies put into the program will result in positive health outcomes for the population (resulting from your application of the use of cost-effectiveness, cost-utility, or cost-benefit to the program design process).
