The first phase was completed with the facilitation of a self-diagnostic assessment (OMT) for each organization participating in this project that helps them identify and prioritize their strengthening needs in key areas like strategy, leadership, finances, and systems.

Next step is opening the 3 year operational grant process where the participants could use the results from the OMT to define areas of improvement and development, and the budget needed to achieve their goals.
