Materials from the 2015 Grant Application Meeting

ABE Program Narrative

The program narrative application is designed to give existing ABE consortia and new or reorganized applicants for ABE funding an opportunity to review and describe program results, successes, and organizational structure, adherence to state and federal requirements, and future plans.  Along with other sections of the Program Application, the Narrative will be evaluated in order to make decisions about new or continuing multi-year program approval and funding.  ABE program narratives received by the deadline will be rated by a team of reviewers according to the application evaluation criteria specified in Minnesota Statutes, Section 124D.52 and in the Minnesota State Plan for ABE.
