Take Stock of Where You Are

Partner with CEP through the Grantee Perception Report (GPR) to gather actionable insights into your work based on the candid perspectives of your grantees.

  • Rigorous Methodology: Learn about the practices most connected to effectiveness through our extensively tested and research-informed survey instrument.
