Types of information that we collect on the linked grant application portal

This website has a link to the grant application portal for Project SCALES. On that linked site, users are asked to create a password-protected user account to submit their application materials. This section describes the information collected through the linked application portal.

Personally identifiable information

CSCP collects personally identifiable information, including names and email addresses, from users who voluntarily provide such information to us by registering for an account on the application portal. The application portal requests information about your school district. The budget section of the application includes financial information such as salaries for project personnel. The only individuals who have access to grant application materials are the Project SCALES administrative team, the professionals that we will retain to serve as application reviewers, and the administrators at the United States Department of Agriculture. Application materials will be stored securely with password-protected access only to authorized users. Application materials will not be shared with any parties other than those necessary for the review and grantee selection process. If you choose to do so, you may request that any previously-submitted application materials be deleted. To do so, contact us at [email protected].

CSCP has no control over the content, privacy policies, or practices of third party websites. CSCP can not edit the content of third party websites.

How long we retain your data
