Testament of NCSSLE's direct assistance to grantees: "As you probably already know, [NCSSLE TA provider] is excellent! I find our time together beneficial. It’s great to have time reserved to discuss progress, challenges, ideas, and brainstorm with someone who knows the project and can provide resources and create connections with other grantees that can share how they overcame similar challenges."
