A Closer Look

The Official GAR Blog

To our grantees, partners, and colleagues: Welcome to our new blog, A Closer Look. In an effort to help you get to know us better, we will be posting articles, letters, links, and comments to this space periodically.  We hope that this will give us an opportunity to address, in a little more depth, some of the questions about GAR that come up from time to time. We also hope to engage you around issues, elicit your input and ideas, and occasionally even entertain you!
