The Community Grant Review Board will review each individual application according to a predetermined set of criteria. That criteria includes:
Whether the application provides sufficient information.
Whether that application has recently received a community grant.
Whether the organization has formally supported the application through a vote taken at one of their meetings.
How many members of the applicant organization live in Ocoee.
How many clients of the applicant organization live in Ocoee.
What other fundraising efforts has the organization used besides this grant process to gain funding for this purpose?
Whether the organization volunteers in the community on a regular basis, or whether they are willing to volunteer their time outside of that which is dedicated to benefit their own organization.
What accomplishments their organization has made over the past 24 months.
The merits of the specific purpose of the grant in so far as it is important to the Ocoee community as a whole versus the benefits to the organization or individual members or clients of the organization.
