The success of the Challenge relies heavily on strong community partnerships and trust with local groups and organizations – particularly as more meetings are held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, the Challenge will require the Focus on Energy team to coordinate closely with a lead contact(s) that is well connected to those who live and work in the community to plan and implement the two eight-week community campaigns. Ideally, applicants can identify an appropriate point person to spend 6 – 8 hours a week coordinating with the Focus on Energy team during peak campaign periods as well as 1 – 3 hours a week during “off” periods. In becoming the Community Point Person, his/her/their organization becomes ineligible for financial rewards as a local cause.
