Building Healthy Communities Discretionary Spending Process for Momentum Teams

Adopted Feb. 7, 2012

 

 

 

Total Available: $5,500

(Example: award one project $5,500, or two projects $2,750 each, or three projects $1,833 each)

 

Process: The decision to select projects is made by the Mid-City CAN Coordinating Council by consensus. The Coordinating Council uses a consensus tool (example on page 2) called the decision matrix, to score proposals. Each coordinating council member rates each proposal on a scale of 0-5 based on eight criteria. Any project that scores below 60 percent of the maximum potential points is not eligible. Any Coordinating Council member submitting a project for consideration or who stands to gain from a project must abstain from voting or participating in the deliberations. This is in line with the Mid-City CAN Conflict of Interest Policy on the Mid-City CAN Governance Guidelines. To read the Governance Guidelines, Code of ethics, or other Mid-City CAN documents, visit www.midcitycan.org.

 

To apply, complete the cover sheet and attach a second page answering the following questions (Please do not attach more than two pages):

· Briefly describe the project and its goals?

· Does it advance the Mid-City CAN vision?

· Does it meet Mid-City CAN Code of Ethics?

· Does it further Building Healthy Communities Initiative goals?

· Does it build Mid-City CAN capacity?

· Will it be used in City Heights?

· What are the costs and community impact?

· What is the timeline and work that will be done in that time?

 

These are restricted funds and may not be used as follows:

· To support individuals, an individual resident, or an individual organization member’s needs.

· As a scholarship.

· To provide support services: transportation, child care, snacks, and interpretation/translation.

· To a single-agency project.

 

Helpful tips:

· Work collaboratively, with your Momentum Team, and in teams of 3 or more residents of City Heights and non-resident allies.

· Be realistic in your request.

· Make sure your co-chairs and staff organizer know about your application.

· Make sure it’s doable in two to three months time.

· If you need help or have questions, ask. Contact Diana Ross ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or your Mid-City CAN staff organizer.
