Another Contentious CVE Meeting

Faiza Filsan reporting from another community meeting about CVE. It appears there is still intense disagreement in the community about the program. Perhaps folks can focus on the monetary side of the program for a moment. Youthprise has $466 thousand at hand and sent out a request for proposal. Youthprise received proposals to the tune of $1.5 million, obvious huge imbalance. I asked some people in the community what led to the misalignment? The common answer was that unclear and vague information from Youthprise. It's important to note that with the exception of $140 from Carlson Family Foundation which went to Big Brother Big Sister, the rest of the $1 million figure is pledge or tied to appropriation so it's not money in the bank.
