Answer : Yes, any club member or president or district officer can submit a proposal online through the member access portal. Q uestion : Can host and sponsor districts see each other's proposal and application submissions? Can the DG, DRFC, or DGSC see them? Answer : Yes, both host and international primary contacts for global grant applications and DGs, DRFCs, and DGSCs from the host and international sponsor countries can see proposal and application submissions online. Partner districts will also be able to view applications in the system. Q uestion : When a club submits a global grant proposal online will the district officers be notified by TRF and be able to see the proposal? Answer : Our initial online system does not alert district officers that a proposal has been submitted, but the district officers will be copied on the notification to project sponsors after the proposal review. As you train your clubs over the next few months, please encourage them to include district officers in their planning process so you know when a proposal is being planned. TRF, in turn, will review its procedures to ensure that district officers are part of this process.
