How are projects selected?
The Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation Board reviews each project on a case by case basis. However, preference will be given to projects that support the Imagine Brownsville Comprehensive Plan, have detailed budgets and whose match is larger than 20%. If BCIC has funded you in the past, compliance with reporting and completion of the project will be evaluated as part of your application. Applications will also be evaluated based on the projects' sustainability plan.
