Responses to the NOFA/RFP had to be submitted via ED Grants by Jan. 16, 2018.
Eligible proposals were evaluated and scored by the Consolidated Plan Advisory Board (CPAB), which subsequently ratified the same on Mar. 14, 2018. Click on the links below to access the list of proposals by project type, ranked by CPAB score from highest to lowest, as well as to see which ones may be fully funded based on the ranking and the anticipated budget for each project type.
