How we got here (summary):
Sylvia Kantor clarified that the RFA that was created and passed out today (10/20/07) is very similar to the proposal process the co-conveners went through;they proposed potential projects as examples to set where we’re going. Allen Cheadel emphasized that in the description of community development and systems change we are less interested in programs and what we are looking for are higher level policy and systems change opportunities, recommending that this question be answered in a series of bullets to get the idea across.
Allen Cheadle: Probably more like 50,000 to 100,000 per community.Vanisha Duggal asked, “If a location is not one of the two that is selected, canthey still participate?”Derek Birnie: The criteria doesn’t mention the geographic impact. The healthdisparities criteria talk about awareness of disparities. This doesn’t necessarilymean that the #’s are really bad.Erin MacDougall: All are equal when it comes to hard data.
Community Context---
Page 6 bullet 3: How will you use this information? Should they be forced tocount number of gyms and parks?Erin MacDougall: We realize that everyone sees their own assets and how theymight be improved.
Caren Adams: “What specific barriers within your community do you wish toaddress”Vanisha Duggal: I like that, because one could have 40 gyms and still have a lotof health disparities.Katherine Johnson:
Does focus area mean perhaps that zoning changes aremade across the city?
If so, this is a good thing.
Do you truly want thatpolicy environmental change, or are you looking for programdevelopment?
Your community change efforts should be driven by grassroots and smallneighborhoods and communities that have a larger change. It doesn’thave to be a neighborhood with “x” number of residents, but can’t thishappen on both levels?Katherine Johnson: When we talk community, we talk about community of color, or immigrant community, but it is difficult for us to divideneighborhoods. Neighborhoods don’t agree.
Erin MacDougall: Is there a way for us to define a question that lets thecommunity applying define what their idea of grassroots or communitychange is?
Allen Cheadel: Describe your community engagement process.Ruth Egger: At our community meetings in Rainier Valley, it was only staff. Weneed to emphasize outreach of groups that are disenfranchised.
Will there bemoney for translation?
Sylvia Kantor: There is some money allocated for translation services.
Erin MacDougall: (bottom of page 5, top of page 6) Let’s talk about specificbarriers around local food and safe play areas and how you imagine theymight be addressed. (Shorten this section).
Val Allan: It is okay to put down our weaknesses on our application, liketechnical assistance?
Derek Birnie: There is tension between grassroots and municipalitiesregarding approach. Is there an implicit value around not just engagementbut empowerment?
Allen Cheadel: Are we assigning greater value to someone with moregrassroots?
