About Agency Review

One of the most public roles of Tempe Community Council (TCC) for the past 32 years has been to distribute 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 volunteers, who work and/or live in Tempe, to bring Agency Review a human touch.  For the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017/18, TCC worked with 55 volunteers, who dedicated an estimated 20 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.  Click here for full report.
