Reviewer 345 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017
Feels like there is still a lack of clarity about what their new portfolios are really meant to fund. We had been given feedback by program officers that we were really aligned with their interests and that we should apply but did not get the grant and received feedback afterward that we really should apply in the future. Having talked with other organizations every single one was told the same thing: you should really apply next time. Feels like it is just leading everyone on.
Applied and not funded
Any time I've requested feedback or opportunities to talk to program staff they have been open to it, but when their feedback turns out to be the same that everyone else is hearing it doesn't actually feel like it was honest or direct.
They are incredibly focused on equity but there is no consistency or clarity on how that impacts the grant applications or decisions.
