How We Evaluate Your Proposal

To evaluate a proposal, the following questions are considered:

  • Is this organization uniquely suited to meet the challenge of the proposal?
  • How do the activities of the organization benefit the community?
  • Will the program be carried out in a efficient and effective manner?
  • Is the budget complete and realistic?
  • Are the objectives measurable?
