We develop and write highly competitive grant proposal with a proven track record of success. We can assist with the writing of federal, state, and non-profit grant proposals including logic models, goals and objectives, and short and longer-term outcomes.
Data collection, analysis, & visualization
In collaboration with our clients, we design data collection systems to meet performance reporting requirements; conduct statistical analysis using both descriptive and advanced statistical methods; and, interpret data findings. Results are presented in a variety of formats – text, tables, graphics – to meet the needs of multiple stakeholders.
It’s one thing to collect data, it’s another to use that information to streamline and strengthen program practices and policies. We work with our clients to increase their knowledge and skills to better understand and use data to make program and policies more efficient and effective.
Survey research & focus groups
We develop, distribute, analyze and report both paper and online surveys. In addition, we work with clients to plan focus groups and interviews, facilitate these, and analyze results.
