  4. Discussion of  People First Funding Request.:  People First submitted a request for $14,700.  Molly explained that in past years  she had supported People First through the Director’s discretionary fund.  She facilitated the People First Board retreat in September and requested that they actually submit a proposal for funding for the year,  so that there was better accountability, data and outcomes to report. Support to People First is in our five year Plan as a Self-Advocacy goal.   The committee discussed the request .  Molly indicated that Alicia had indicated via e-mail that she would support the proposal and Patty indicated she was in support of the proposal as well.  Ann Gionet moved to fund People First for the amount requested ($14,700), to be paid and managed according to Council protocol to be outlined in the  MOU and Council directives.  Megan seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
