Our partnership uses a collaborative approach to grant review. Representatives from each school reviewed three or four grants other than their own, based on everything from a clear description, timeline, budget and assessment, to alignment with school goals and curriculum standards.  All projects were funded though sometimes revision or further clarification was requested by the peer reviewers.  Improving outdoor space is a theme that runs through many of the projects this year, along with developing a community ice rink, a seed exchange and a chicken husbandry project.  This year's meeting gave rise to a great discussion about the art of holding back and letting students take the lead. Best wishes to all the VRP teams with these great community projects, and holding back to let students move forward! grant rfp l grant planning guide
