Funding Information Center to Send Out Biennial Client Survey on March 1
You will be receiving our Funding Information Center Client Survey by e-mail on Friday, March 1 and we need your help!
We need your responses to evaluate the Funding Information Center's services, to direct future services, and to quantify the value of our program. Are we meeting your funding information needs? How can we improve our services?
From 1990 to 2010, the Funding Information Center (FIC) helped organizations bring at least $223 million in public and private funding to the state of Texas to support public health-related programs and services. This is the FIC's eleventh biennial survey since 1990 and we want to continue serving Texas organizations in the most useful ways possible. Your survey responses will assist us in our mission and help us to quantify the value of the FIC services to our administrators and the Legislature.
The survey is completely anonymous and should take less than 15 minutes to complete. Please complete the 2011 — 2012 FIC Client Survey by March 29.
And we thank you in advance for your time and assistance!
