GRANT FUNDING BACKGROUND INFORMATION
On behalf of the Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD), the City of Revelstoke wholly administers this program for area residents. A committee of community members and staff with outside administration help, conduct the annual process of applications, adjudications, awards, and reporting.
Project evaluation criteria includes four components:
A. ‘Screening’ criteria which all projects must meet;
B. Key community-based environmental and social goals;
C. General project criteria including practical factors and economic impacts; and
D. Community support.
The screening criteria will be applied early in the proposal review process to avoid unnecessary consideration of projects that do not meet the intent of this program. The remaining three categories – key community criteria, general project criteria and community support - will be assigned a point value for evaluation and ranking of proposals. A maximum of 100 points will be distributed as follows: 40 points to key community criteria, 45 points to general project criteria and 15 points to community support.
The four components of project evaluation are described on the application form.
Deadline to apply is Monday, February 14, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
Evaluation of funding applications will include consideration of public input on project proposals. Public Input will be offered through public attendance at an online meeting where applicants will be give 2 minutes to present an overview of their projects and how they would provide a community benefit. This online meeting will be held on Monday, March 7. Public support for projects will be obtained by way of a voting system taking place as part of the online meeting only.
