Review of Innovation Funding Requests

Brodnick presented the summary of the CVT evaluation spreadsheet that noted the ratings of each CVT along the criteria set forth in the Call for Proposals. Also included were ratings of readiness and leadership and a 'fund now' with priority ratings. The 12 CVTs were ranked based on the preferences for funding.

Each of the 12 CVT proposals were individually reviewed and recommendations were made regarding full funding, partial funding, or no funding. In addition, specific requirements were established for each CVT. At the conclusion of the meeting, a summary document containing the decisions and recommendations as well as a spreadsheet outlining the recommended funding amounts will be prepared and distributed to the group. Follow up includes individual letters summarizing the recommendations to be distributed to each CVT.
