Merits and Priority

In determining the merits and priority of an application, particular consideration will be given to:

  • The seriousness of the problem and adequacy of the proposed action.
  • The degree to which the proposal enables individuals to help themselves.
  • The capability of the organization and its personnel to achieve expected results; and the degree of potential benefit to the community.

Priorities for funding will vary from time to time. Even though a project meets established criteria, it may not be funded because of limited funds or other reasons.
