If you have more good ideas for research and evaluation projects than funding, be aware that Keith is available to assist you in identifying potential funders and preparing grant proposals. While he is available to work on such projects as a researcher or evaluator, he is also available strictly as a researcher of funding sources and a proposal writer.
