The information provided in this application shall not be shared to anyone else and is kept confidential among designated members of RCAHD. Upon submission, both the applicant and RCAHD will receive a copy of this application.
After submission, your application will go through our Five Phases of the Review Process.
1. Initial Screening
Our grant manager will review your application and documents to ensure their authenticity before passing them along. This phase will be completed within 24 hours of submission, if not sooner.
2. Initial Review
Our team at RCAHD will look over your application and send you any questions we may have concerning your responses and/or documents. This step is designed to help your application look its best before being sent off to the Review Board. Members of this team will not be allowed to participate in the blind-review board that will later evaluate your organization's demonstrated capacity to support RCAHD's mission. Members of this team will, however, evaluate RCAHD's present need for your project later on.
3. Review Board
A blind review will be organized to evaluate your organization's capacity to support RCAHD's goal. Information on scoring can be found in the Appendix section of the RFP.
4. Needs Assessment
The same people who conducted the Initial Review will conduct a needs assessment for your organization's project idea. Using the latest health-related data, this phase will assess the demand for project ideas like yours in the current context of the pandemic.
Once RCAHD has decided to finance your project idea, we will reach out for a meeting to discuss the amount that will be granted to your organization for relevant activities and the performance measures that will be used in quarterly reporting. Both matters will be entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that must be completed before RCAHD can reimburse your organization for expenses relating to its relevant activities.
