"Don't underestimate the real value of general operations grants as a simple but critical capacity-building strategy. Gen op grants are the trip-wire that triggers everything else that can happen to make improvements, and provide the flexibility within the agency to really have the dollars to allocate to their real costs to make the kinds of improvements they envision making."

– Marianne Philbin, Executive Director,
Pierce Family Foundation
