Service & Advocacy Council

Funding Guidelines

1.      Requests of less than ten percent of the current year’s Service and Advocacy Council budget will be heard weekly at the Service and Advocacy Funding Board meeting. 

2.      Requests over ten percent of the current year’s budget will first be heard by the Service and Advocacy Funding Board, who will provide a recommendation to the Service and Advocacy Council.  The Service and Advocacy Council will vote on the request at the upcoming Council Meeting.

3.      The Service and Advocacy Funding Board may recommend that all or part of the request is referred to the Senate Appropriation Committee. This does not go through an approval process with the Council.

4.      In each scenario, the board may alter the amount requested (they are able to decrease the total funds requested only).

Funding Board Vote

  1. It takes a majority vote (50% plus one) to pass a request
  2. Funding board members are ineligible to vote in requests made by organizations they consider themselves members of.
