Members of the Grant Committee will review and evaluate all LOl’s received and invite select agencies to proceed to a full Grant Application. Similarly,Grant Committee members will then review and evaluate the full Grant Applications. determining the semi-finalists who will receive a site visit.

Applicants who are selected for a site visit will work with a Grant Committee liaison to schedule a convenient date and time for a group of members to visit their site. Site visit guidelines will be distributed in advance of the visit.

Following these visits, finalists will be selected by the Grant Committee and endorsed by the Board of Directors. Finalists will have several weeks to confirm an Executive Summary prepared by the Grant Committee and prepare a brief oral presentation, following guidelines to be distributed at the time.
