if a project is for private homeowners in a neighborhood and all property owners are invested in project, what would community engagement look like?
Rebecca French, CT DEEP
29:04
@mackenzie - we will include more details on the definition of vulnerable populations in the presentation

Can a consultant help with writing a grant application and carry out work for planning or project development? Or does working on the application make them ineligible for contracting services?
Bryan Avery (he/him) Joshua's Trust
32:42
Would in-lieu fee grant funds from the CT ILF (Army Corps of Engineers) be considered a local match partner? Audubon CT is the administrator of this program
Mary Looney, UConn CLEAR
32:46
If municipalities were looking to implement a stormwater utility, would hiring a consultant for a feasibility study need to be funded by federal funds? Or would this be considered as implementing the plan?
Gail Robinson

Does Track 1 cover expenses for studies such as hydrodynamics, e.g. sediment transport, wave action?
Rania Campbell-Bussiere, GZA

Thank you!

Rebecca and Sarah, I think the question is around the subtle differences between hyper-local planning, site selection, and project selection. If the project cannot be identified in the application, is Track 2 best?
Rebecca French, CT DEEP
51:35
@david if there is NO project identified or even a list of potential projects already identified from which you would be choosing (e.g. those projects already identified in a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan), I would recommend going for Track 1 planning
Rebecca French, CT DEEP
52:35
Projects under Track 2 must have been identified in a previous "plan." If no planning process has occurred, you should be going for funding under Track 1.

Half of our project is in Bridgeport, an EJ community, and half is in Fairfield. Does this get considered as a priority or will it be part of second screening of grants?
Courtney Lindberg

will this be posted by next week?
