In an arena served almost exclusively by for-profit consultancies, CGR stands apart. Since our founding, we have operated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a status that insulates us from political bias and holds us accountable to our clients’ true shareholders – the communities they serve – positioning them as more desirable places to live and work.
Just like our clients, we’re in the business of making a difference.
Over the years CGR has received many awards for its work. The most recent is our 2014 Distinguished Research Award from the Governmental Research Association (GRA), the national organization of professionals engaged in governmental research. In a statewide study, CGR found most county nursing homes in NYS are in jeopardy, and can’t sustain operating their homes as they have in the past. The study was funded by the NYS Health Foundation.
