C. RFP Review Criteria

Applications will be scored based on the following criteria. Total scores will contribute to the discussion on funding recommendations. Application scores will be an important, but not the sole factor, in making decisions. The mix of program types, target populations and geographic distribution will also be taken into account.

Extent to which the proposal aligns with city, neighborhood or community based planning processes or reports.

Extent to which the proposal presents an adequate and detailed budget and demonstrates strategic planning for any future funding needs.
