Evaluation

All applicants are subjected to a substantial programmatic and financial review. Among other requirements, projects must provide a public benefit and demonstrate that similar funding was not otherwise available.

The first step in the review process is to review the Threshold requirements. Then reviewers will complete a desk review of the application, a comprehensive underwriting of the applicant and the project, an energy evaluation and a site visit to evaluate the proposed project. A project is considered based on its own merits and as it compares to the other applicants in the same grant round.

Recommendations for funding will be based upon the goals, measurable objectives, activities, and evaluation components of the proposal and organizational need. Recommendations for funding will be made by the Investment Review Committee to CDFA’s Board of Directors.
