Program Review

Many civic and government-funded programs require measurement of program success for retention, sustainability, needed changes and continued funding. The CERD can work with organizations to develop the best evaluation instrument to provide needed data to show program impact based on the feedback and input of participants.

Designing the best plan to gather the opinions and information from rural community citizens is our specialty. As certified Community Development Block Grant administrators, we understand the information needed for strong grant applications and for other funding sources and initiatives.

Whether testing a new business idea or learning about your existing services and programs, we can help you use data to strengthen your position. With access to various databases, we can resource secondary data, provide useful information, and can also help you design primary research strategies to move your venture forward.
