This RFP does NOT require you to get support letters or Memorandums of Understanding from your partners. If awarded a grant, DEED will monitor the program to ensure that the partners are providing the services indicated in the grant proposal.
1. DEED does NOT require a certain number of youth organizations that should be reached by this grant. The question of "quantity vs quality" should be addressed by balancing the two. 2. NO, the form is only used as an example of the kind of information that will be required to be gathered for reporting by successful grantees.
No. Minnesota State Colleges and Universities' organizational structure does not lend itself to the definition of a CBO. We would strongly suggest that the local unit of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities form a partnership with a local Somali organization to provide the educational/training services that the Somali organization cannot provide.
