Staff Funding Recommendation Process
Prior to the finalization of a staff recommendation to the Board, the staff may meet with a Board subcommittee to discuss projects with major policy or budget issues that need to be resolved prior to a final Board decision.
Staff shall review the recommendations from each regional review team and make a statewide funding recommendation to the Board based on available resources for the grant period and type. The recommendation shall include any conditions placed on individual projects and may include proposed budget adjustments. The staff recommendation, as represented in the staff report to the Board, shall be sent to applicants and members of the Regional Review Teams at least two weeks before the Board meeting where funding decisions are to be made.
Applicants may provide written or oral comment to the Board on the staff recommendation prior to the Board decision.
