Evaluation

Get helpful feedback from experts.

Evaluation Panel

The Technology Innovation Challenge benefits from esteemed Evaluation Panel judges, who have been thoughtfully selected for their knowledge and experience. Collectively, these renowned professionals bring diverse experience – from the public, private and nonprofit sectors – technology, homelessness, service delivery, and large-scale systems, and share a strong commitment to the fight against homelessness.

Each valid application will be reviewed from at least five Evaluation Panel experts specializing in their selected solution area using the scoring rubric. Each valid application will receive five sets of scores and feedback that have been statistically normalized. Informed by the Evaluation Panel resulting rank order, the County of LA will review top-scoring submissions to select up to 12 Finalists based on considerations that may include, but are not limited to capacity and feasibility.
