Staff will review your application to ensure that all the minimum requirements are met, as well as:
Ensuring the requested land/area is available for use
Ensuring the requested amenity is suitable for the area
Reviewing the appropriateness of the scope, budget, cost-share and demonstration of support
Undergoing a three month vetting process wherin the applicant must be available for occasional questions and meetings with Neighborhood Partnering Program staff
If the above criteria cannot be met, the application will not be allowed to proceed. If minor corrections can be made that will allow the application to move forward, staff will give the applicant one week to resubmit.
Applications that do proceed will go through a technical review committee, if needed, to understand everything that is required to install the project. That committee will determine whether or not the project is feasible from both technical and cost perspectives. If the project is not feasible owing to technical, budgetary, or logistical issues, your organization will be notified.
Requests that make it through the feasibility assessment will be reviewed, scored, and ranked with awards being made based on available funding.
