PHASE 2: Methodology For Prioritization

The Prioritization Process
For the community prioritization process, which will run until the end of June, people will be asked to select and rank up to seven issues. Five to seven of the top issues identified by the community will then be carried through to phase three, the “deep dive,” which will involve a more detailed examination of the issue and related resources to identify possible solutions. In phase four, working groups will be formed – broadly open to and seeking participation from the community – to review the collected data and alternative solutions, develop specific action plans, and begin implementing change.

The five to seven issues will be selected for follow-up using the following approach:

If one or both highest ranked issues for low-income participants are also among the top ranked for the entire survey population, then we will select the fourth highest ranked from the entire population (or fourth and fifth, if both overlap).

With five issues thus selected, the steering committee will then closely examine the data with the option of moving a sixth and seventh issue forward to the deep dive, based on three considerations: equity, impact, and timeliness.

If there is an issue that is highly ranked by a particular demographic group, but the group does not make up a sufficient portion of the population for the issue to make it into the community’s top ranks, the issue might be selected for follow-up.

If there is an issue that is highly ranked but not in the top five, and the committee feels that addressing this issue could have significant positive ripple effects on other top ranked issues, or addressing the issue might be particularly timely (e.g., there are federal funds available, or there is another set of efforts underway that could benefit or be benefitted by addressing the issue), then the committee could select the issue for follow-up.
