o Additional Guidance to Applicants:

The two (2) factors which tend to create the greatest variability in scores are “Environmental Significance” and “Project Viability.”

“Environmental Significance” refers to the proposed project, not the significance of the issue or cause being addressed. We evaluate the scope of the project, the project impact on the environment and the immediacy and timing of the project.

“Project Viability” refers to the likelihood of success of the project with consideration given to the accomplishments to date, future impact, the asset base to accomplish the goals of the project and the effective use of photography.

These two (2) factors represent 80% of the score (split evenly.)
