Thank you for your email. I received questions from others following the call and responded earlier today but I’m not sure you’re on that thread/mailing list so please find my email copied below for your convenience. I remain available for any further questions:
Thank you for your follow up and questions. As per the information provided on the call and the slides which I believe At-Large staff posted on the relevant wiki space, CROP is being reintroduced in FY19. The Board approved for a 50k allocation for CROP and Policy staff administering the program is currently working at updating the guidelines and the Wiki space accordingly.
The community will be updated as soon as more information is available and will receive an email regarding the launch of the CROP wiki space as per usual practice. This year this is slightly delayed due to the budget changes after the public comment process, but please rest assured that we are making this a priority and will communicate guidelines asap.
Please note that the focus will be ICANN public meetings and/or meetings with significant ICANN presence and organization in partnership with ICANN GSE VPs, especially in situations where a public meeting is not occurring in one of the RALO regions. We are therefore taking all these factors into account to ensure the program remains fair across the board and accessible to promote outreach activities
Due to the reduced envelope we don’t think full allocations will be allowed and are tentatively looking at reduced slots per RALO and GNSO constituencies for regional travel using these guidelines. No out of region options will be possible.
I hope this answers your current questions to develop your outreach strategies, unfortunately we aren’t able to provide anything further at this stage.
Manager, Policy Support & Community Services

Dear Benedetta and Mary,
Following the ALAC Sub Committee on Outreach and Engagement call, we seemed to have skipped discussing the CROP Travel lots.
According to the revised budgets, CROP experience a new terms and conditions and also 50% budget cuts. We would like to inquire the following:
How many trips are permitted per RALO?
What type of trips since the new rules justify that CROP will be used for ICANN sponsored events as these are CROP Approved trips.
As the RALOs are in the process of drafting there Regional Strategies, there is need for the Outreach and Engagement WG members to clearly understand the new changes such that these can be communicated directly to the members of the respective RALOs.
Explanation is very important in this case.
