To file an appeal for funding grant decisions made by the MRA, you must be able to demonstrate one or more of the following criteria:
Grant decisions will be communicated to applicants via email.
Written appeals should clearly outline why the appeal is being made – new information and/or procedural error – and provide sufficient evidence to support the request.
Submit appeals in writing by email to the executive director no sooner than 48 hours and no later than ten business days after being notified of the grant decision. Appeals must not exceed two pages.
The Appeal Review Committee will review the appeal along with the initial funding decision, funding submissions (initial and appeal), letters, emails, community needs, and the grant applicant's capacity.
Based on its review, the committee will prepare a written decision to be signed by the members. The appeal review committee shall send the written decision via email to the appellant.
