ACESDV Request for Feedback
On February 9th, the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence held an Open Forum requesting community members’ and survivors’ feedback on the process of selecting a Grant Selection Committee and the grant application selection process for the MARPA COVID 19 Grant Funds (Competitive Grant). ACESDV seeks to engage in Participatory Grantmaking in this process, ensuring that the Grant Selection Committee is diverse and inclusive to include community members and survivors in the decision process.
We are also extending the invitation for feedback to anyone that was not able to attend the Open Forum.
Your feedback will influence the following processes:
- The process ACESDV uses to select members to serve on a Grant Selection Committee who will review all applications submitted for the MARPA COVID 19 Grant Funds (Competitive Grant) and make recommendations to Maricopa County, which has the final approval.
- The process ACESDV and the Grant Selection Committee will use to review the applications.
Our hope is your participation in this process will lead to joint decision-making that will impact the programs that survivors have access to.
Please read the PowerPoint presentation from the Open Forum detailing the processes ACESDV is proposing then complete the Participatory Grantmaking Survey.
Reading the presentation and completing the survey will take between 10-15 minutes depending on your feedback.
