Why don’t government or funders require this data as a condition of funding?

Governments and funders do typically require their grantees to report various kinds of data, but it’s generally non-standardized and not specifically about services themselves.

We would be glad to discuss examples of this and offer suggestions for how this approach can be strategically pursued in your community.
