Agency Review

One of the most public roles of Tempe Community Council (TCC) for the past 33 years has been to administer and manage the distribution human services funds on behalf of the City of Tempe, known as “Agency Review.”

What makes this process unique – a true community effort – and much more than simply a grant process, is that TCC mobilizes
interested community members, who work and/or live in Tempe, to bring Agency Review a human touch. For the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018/19, TCC worked with 51 volunteers, who dedicated an estimated 21 hours each over a three month period, to reading
and evaluating human services proposals, interviewing respective agencies and making funding recommendations to the
City Council. This process is arduous, eye-opening, complex and rewarding for everyone involved.
