CERF Planning Phase Draft Guidelines: Spanish and Cantonese Public Workshops 


This week and next, the Community Economic Resilience Fund Program (CERF) is hosting four regional public workshops to collect feedback on the newly released Planning Phase Draft Guidelines.  

The CERF team recognizes the need to increase accessibility to our opportunities and programs. To mitigate some of the language barrier challenges, the CERF team is excited to announce that there will also be two more Planning Phase Draft Guidelines workshops in Spanish and Cantonese! If you feel that there are other community members or stakeholders that could use translation services, please reach out to the CERF team for future public engagement opportunities.  

These workshops will review provide an overview of the post-award Planning Phase deliverables, application requirements, scoring and reporting responsibilities, and more. You can find the Planning Phase Draft Guidelines linked here and on the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research’s CERF webpage. After the overview, we will have a Q&A session, and welcome attendees to ask questions or share their comments on the program or Draft Guidelines.  

Please share this opportunity widely with the Spanish-speaking and Cantonese-speaking communities! The CERF team is also providing translated flyers for your convenience in Spanish and Cantonese
