There is a requirement of a periodic detailed and definitive survey as a census of needs in any grant or revolving fund program to monitor the process of implementing the program, to ensure that there exists no fraudulent use of the monies, to show progress, and to determine best practices over time with a historical database of improvement. Without that, unwise spending, or fraud, waste and abuse will cripple the positive effect.

Yes 45.45%
