§ 119.21. Factors in awarding grants.

 (a)  Group A. The following factors will be taken into consideration in the awarding of program aid to a COG:

   (1)  Whether the proposed use of requested aid by the COG relates to the solution of areawide problems, better provision of services and improvement of local government effectiveness.

   (2)  Whether the area and population covered by the COG, and the number of municipalities actively participating in the COG provide a logical base for the performance of the proposed function.

   (3)  Whether the members have evidenced support or intent to support (including financial support) the COG to make it an effective, ongoing instrument for dealing with areawide concerns. This shall include the demonstration of intent exemplified by the undertaking of a joint areawide functional program.

   (4)  Whether the COG is organized so that there is a minimum of overlap with the organization, activities and sphere of operation of another entity providing areawide services, such as another COG.

   (5)  Whether the proposed COG program is the most appropriate approach for the members of the COG to achieve their stated objectives.

 (b)  Group B. The following factors will be taken into consideration in the awarding of program aid to a COG:

   (1)  Whether the applicant’s proposed use of requested aid relates to the solution of areawide problems, provision of services and to local government effectiveness.

   (2)  Whether the area and population covered and the number of municipalities actively participating provide a logical base for the performance of the proposed function or study.

   (3)  Whether the members have evidenced support or intent to support (including financial support) the cooperative effort to make it an effective, ongoing instrument for dealing with areawide concerns. This shall include the demonstration of intent exemplified by the undertaking of a joint areawide functional program.

   (4)  Whether the intergovernmental activity provides for a minimum of overlap duplication or conflict with the organization, activities and sphere of operation of another entity providing area wide services, such as an existing COG.

   (5)  That the proposed intergovernmental activity is the most appropriate approach for the members of the COG to achieve their stated objectives.

 (c)  Significant funding considerations. The following will receive exceptional attention and consideration in the review and approval of applications:

   (1)  The geographical area and population to be served by the proposed intergovernmental activity, with a view toward maximum or optimum programmatic impact following an initial grant.

   (2)  The administrative performance of the grantee, particularly in administering any previous grants from the Department.
