Thank you to the various non-profit organizations that worked with the Bureau of State Audits during the application period to encourage applicants to submit a supplemental application and to make sure that applicants had enough information about the application process to be able to complete the application to the best of their abilities. These “outreach partners” held workshops, conducting webinars, and engaging in other efforts throughout the state to help applicants stay engaged in the application process. The bureau provided announcements about some of the workshops when asked to do so by the organizations involved. Many of the organizations received private grants from the James Irvine Foundation to help finance their outreach efforts.
Included on this page is a list of those “outreach partners” with links to their websites. As part of compiling the list, we asked organizations of all types and all political persuasions throughout the state that have expressed an interest in the application process, including political parties, chambers of commerce, professional and labor organizations, political clubs, and service groups, whether they were actively involved in providing information to applicants about the application process and wanted to be listed on our website as organizations providing information about the application process. These are the organizations that told us they wanted to be listed as “outreach partners”. These organizations run the gamut of the political spectrum. While we cannot and do not endorse any of these organizations, we posted information about them here so that applicants knew these organizations were available to them to as a resource.
