Application Review

Grant applications will be scored competitively using 50-point scales. For your reference, you can find these scoring tools in the library above. Provider grant applications will be reviewed and scored by two different committees. The first application review will be performed by your specific RETAC at a date and time determined by the RETAC. The second review session will be conducted by the SEMTAC on May 13 & 14 2021.  All applicants are encouraged to attend both their RETAC and SEMTAC reviews to answer any questions reviewers may have. Review schedules will be posted at: after the grant application deadline.

System improvement funding requests will be reviewed and scored by the SEMTAC Public Policy and Finance Committee on April 7, 2021.

Applicants applying for a waiver of the standard 50 percent cash match requirement must go through a financial waiver review on February 24, 2021. Financial waiver requests must be reviewed and approved by the financial waiver review committee. Applications with an approved financial waiver are advanced for consideration at their RETAC and SEMTAC review sessions. Applications that fail waiver review do not advance to the evaluation process.
