Why are some projects funded that did not get high scores?

The project score was one component of the funding decision; however, other factors were also considered before funding recommendations were made. These considerations included the served population, geographic location, transformative impact, unique approach or need, and availability of other funding. Some projects that received a lower score were determined to offer a unique funding opportunity through the Pandemic Recovery Fund, and therefore were recommended for funding.
