Do you by chance have a Word version of the full proposal?
In reference to the following bullet under the telehealth solution section of the proposal, are there specific WIC regulations, requirements, or policies you are expecting applicants to respond to? One could take this bullet in a number of directions because there are extensive regulations and policies in WIC.

We can’t, through our MIS, determine whether participants come from rural (or suburban or urban) communities. Our MIS doesn’t collect or assign this information. When addressing the extent to which rural communities are included in the project under the Problem Statement section, we are limited to indicating simply that the clinics partially or completely serve rural communities. We would use the Census Bureau’s definitions to determine whether a geographic area is rural, suburban, or urban. Knowing this, do you have any additional guidance or clarification to provide to ensure we are providing the information needed/requested?
Will you accept local agency survey responses expressing willingness to participate in the study instead of Letters of Support?
As part of our effort to support our local agencies in these kinds of innovation efforts, we are also considering providing LAs with stipends to account for their contributions on this project. Are stipends to local agencies an allowable use of part of the grant funding? If not, are there other ways we could incorporate LAs time/effort into our proposed budget?
Depending on their involvement in the project, should telehealth vendors be listed in key personnel and provide a biosketch, or should that be limited to state/local WIC staff?
For the evaluation, sites (health clinics) for the proposed project will not be randomly assigned but we do plan to randomize individuals within clinics to treatment or comparison groups. Would this evaluation design be randomized, non-randomized, or both (quasi)?
