The National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers opened nominations for Breakthrough Reform Projects from June 2018 to August 24, 2018. The Review Committee received a total of sixty-five submissions from organizations, campaigns, and individuals across the country. The committee is comprised of:
Each submission was reviewed by at least two committee members using the evaluation criteria (below). The evaluations were then discussed among the entire committee. Committee members were prohibited from reviewing or commenting on any proposal in which they participated.
All submissions were then sent to Honorary Co-Chairs Katherine M. Gehl and Michael E. Porter for final review with the committee’s feedback.
We received 65 impressive submissions. Four submissions were selected as finalists and six were selected as honorable mentions. These submissions will be presented at an upcoming meeting between board members and potential funders. Additionally, the board is considering endorsement requests for many of the nominated projects.
