Q: If a RESA supports a specific project, does that prevent the RESA from supporting other efforts? And, can a RESA specify which project it prefers?
A: The applicant will describe the process of engaging the RESA network to help meet the goals of the RFP. The RESAs do not need to choose among the projects, because the RESA network will be engaged in the overall statewide design. The applicant may describe ways in which it will engage its own RESA in greater depth, but a plan to involve all RESAs and, subsequently, budget allocations should be addressed within every application. Every RESA Director should plan to write a letter of support for every application to be submitted.
