The only place I feel is ishhy is the coordinape aspect, but going forward I’d love to see how the new process will improve coordinape.

Please note, edits to this post on 19 July 2022:

  • Corrected references to “Season 4” in the “Next Steps & Timeline” when they should have been “Season 5”
  • Changed the Grants Committee review process. Instead of an iterative review process (submit, feedback, submit), the GC will be actively working directly with applicants to finalize their proposals prior to the July 26th GC meeting. At this meeting, any outstanding proposal issues will be discussed and resolved prior to the July 29th funding Snapshot.
