The Civic Research Alliance was established to serve a niche clientele that requires independent, relatively complex analyses and strategic planning to support significant decisions. Most organizations—government, non-profit, and for profit—cannot afford permanent staffing to provide such services, relying on partnerships for research support on an as-needed basis. It is the purpose of the Alliance to assist as many of these organizations and government entities as possible.
The Alliance also serves as a resource facilitator, matching the needs and available resources of clients with services available from a wide array of organizations. The Alliance is not a stand-alone group of researchers; its partners contribute services that might not otherwise be available or affordable for our clients. The purpose of the Alliance is to find the right configuration of support, expertise, and price for each client.
Our clients include municipalities of all types and sizes, school districts, hospitals, community organizations, and businesses. In addition, the Alliance provides major research projects for statewide organizations and state agencies.
The Civic Research Alliance provides services directly to clients and does not represent clients or lobby on their behalf.
