Grantee Satisfaction Survey

The 2023 Grantee Satisfaction Survey launched on April 11th, and if you were selected, you should have received the survey from the CFI Group on behalf of the Department of Education.”  The email subject line is Department of Education Grantee Satisfaction Survey 2023.” The survey is administered by an independent third-party research firm, so our staff will not receive individual survey responses and will have no way of knowing how individual grantees responded.  While the survey is voluntary, we count on everyone’s participation to provide representative results and to help us identify how best to serve you.  The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete, and our success depends on how many of you respond.
