In a 1-page summary in Word format, provide an overview of your budget that includes a mini-synopsis of the significant points. Approach your budget analysis as a practical application and assume you are going to submit it to public health officials to solicit funding for your health program. For this assignment, you will have two deliverables—the summary in Word format and the Excel spreadsheet with your analysis.
