KLESS REVOLVING ENERGY FUND - GREENING UM - UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA

10 Steps to Kless Revolving Energy Loan Fund!


Application Procedures

**The deadline dates are guidelines and all tasks can be completed earlier.


Step 1: Visit the online KRELF application and review the various components of the proposal. Please see the list of project ideas that have already been identified by students and building managers.


Step 2: Before completing the application, make an appointment with the ASUM Sustainability Coordinator to discuss your project proposal. The ASUM Sustainability Coordinator will help you develop your idea and make the necessary building manager contact. The ASUM Sustainability Coordinator can be reached at 243-4856 or asum.sustain@mso.umt.edu.


Step 3: Develop draft proposal and share with ASUM Sustainability Coordinator before March 24, 2015.  When you receive your proposal back from the ASUM Sustainability Coordinator, incorporate any feedback into your final proposal.


Step 4: Applicants are expected to work with the appropriate head of department or work unit head, such as a building manager, to develop projects and to obtain their approval signature. Unit heads and building managers should be given at least one week to review a draft of your proposal so there is time for them to give input, ask questions, and for you to give answers. Please meet with building manager and send them draft proposals well before March 24, 2015.


Step 5: Proposals are due on March 24, 2015.  Applicants will receive comments from the KRELF Committee by the end of the week of April 6, 2015.  Applicants should follow-up with the building manager and ASUM Sustainability Coordinator and make revisions to their proposals based on feedback.


Step 6: All final proposals should be submitted online by April 24, 2015 with all appropriate signatures. Proposals with complete information submitted on or before the deadline will be reviewed and considered on an on-going basis.


Step 7: Proposals with complete information submitted by the deadline will be reviewed by KRELF Committee and they will make project approval decisions. Although the KRELF Committee will accept applications after April 24, 2015, we cannot guarantee they will be considered for KRELF funds this semester.

Step 8:  KRELF Committee will meet to discuss all proposals submitted by April 24, 2015 and will notify all applicants whether or not their proposal received funding.


Step 9: Project applicants and appropriate building managers and department heads will be notified in writing of the KRELF Committee decision by the KRELF Committee Chair or her/his designee.


Step 10: Pat yourself on the back for a job well-done for the planet!
