So helpful Farzana, thank you!

Question: Could you remind me what the “Proposal Timeline by Deborah by November 21st” is? I’m sorry, I don’t remember what this refers to!

Also, I went through and checked off all the next steps that I did remember and that I did complete. Super satisfying. :smile:

Hi @Michael,

I don’t recall what the Proposal Timeline is that Deborah is assigned, can you please remind us both?

Hey @board-circle - it was about the timeline on us hearing back about the Cobble Hill Foundation grant. (The one we would partner with Intergrate NYC on.)

Basically, we just wanted to know when we could hear back.

Thanks, @michael! Farzana, Rachel, and I all plan to be at the Integrate Youth Council event this Friday, so I’ll try to get an update on that.

FYI @michael and @Far-Pritte, I checked with Zaps and she says that the grant info won’t come out until the summer. In the meantime, Zaps and I will schedule a time for #NYCEDU and IntegrateNYC to discuss other ways to partner in January. Will keep everyone updated!
