  • Data driven Evidence-based RFA committee established.
  • Reason for shift to policy focus was intentional. When the funding was cut by what amounted to ~70%, the TRC had a decision to make – stick with a comprehensive/patchwork focus with extremely limited funds… or focus in and try to get to outcomes with a reduced budget? Because it was uncertain how long the fiscal emergency would last, the group decided that outcomes – even in times of reduced funding – are still important and attainable. Funding: November of 2010 through June of 2012 (now a 3 month “transitional” period), so we’re about 13 months in right now.
  • Just a reminder --- we used these models to help inform the RFA development and policy focus. Also looked at what was working in Colorado – the Get R!EAL model, for example – and the evidence base – community guide, CDC best practices, etc. Should remember these from our presentation two months ago. When we talk about CPPW, talk about MAPPS.
  • In a competitive RFA, 18 communities were awarded funding. Two CBO’s One Housing Authority 11 LHA’s
  • The ingredients for success were derived by: Discussions among TA/CDPHE group Grantee survey One on one conversations.
  • (Ask Cindy and Susan to do this slide) As determined by TARP/SE2/CDPHE Give us a framework for where TA is needed and what type…
  • Regular meetings… (this was added about 6 months in – a recognized need by all) Discuss progress of grantees Keep everyone updated More responsive, faster response, Maintaining constant contact w/ grantees and TA providers across the system so that it is responsive, flexible and timely.
  • Under willingness to help: Challenges – work plans too prescriptive, lack of clarity on TA structure, unrealistic expectations Toolkit and TA – started with an idea of what was needed – many grantees expressed strong pro-business environment as a challenge, toolkit materials and TA have stepped up to meet this expressed need. Messages, etc. now congruent w/ the community value of pro-business.
  • Survey of grantees – anonymous feedback on how it’s going. # responded =18
  • Jill does this slide. Highlights: Understanding the policy process Communicating with the media and connections to resources

  • Comment 1     The RFA was too prescriptive       Comment 2     It is difficult to determine the amount of time that will be needed to actually pass ordinances in a municipality. I feel that the expectations have been lowered to realistic levels during the course of the TFCCI project, but initially they were not realistic given the initial timeframe. Funding for administrative support for the project is much needed.       Comment 3     There have been questions about how this strategy was researched prior to the RFA, particularly with Colorado-specific issues. Also, it is very difficult for some grantees to work on these projects with no money allowed for things like rent, technology, accountant. Communication from CDPHE could be improved.       Comment 4     In dedicating all of our resources for two years into a single municipality we are beginning to see significant issues arise around cessation, disparities, and CCIAA compliance throughout the county.
  • Seeing a popcorn effect already YA policies have all been unanimous… No roll backs All are strong policies CDC is recognizing us
  • First bullet --- policy is good, important. However, when the $ comes back, need to reenergize the other components of a comprehensive program – cessation, other outreach, etc.
