2.  The selection committee of the Wolfe & Rita Climate Action Grant program does not encourage Chapters to apply for grants that involve the purchase of office, energy efficiency or communication equipment.  If your grant budget includes the purchase of such equipment be sure that your plan has procedures for the loaning of such equipment to other MCAN chapters when not in use by your chapter and that custody of the equipment will revert to MCAN should your need for the equipment end or should your Chapter become inactive.
