10 Minutes

On Wednesday, June 11, at 8:30 a.m. Commission will interview all the applicants who applied for grant monies for 10 minutes. They will then decide who will get funded and what amounts they will receive. Panel members cannot be a part of the interview process, but they will be given time at the end if they want to speak. Thus the citizen’s review panels’ work seems to have been done in vain.

As a person who used to write grants (yes, despite the typos on this here blog, I’ve written grants,) this makes me sad although it’s not surprising. 10 minutes for programs that help people.

I guess people have to hit cocktail time.
