pre-grant public comment period

I noticed that it seems to be a matter of routine process for there to be a period of time for any "public comment" to be received before most agencies acting in the capacity of a grantor will make final policy determinations of how the potential grant monies will be distributed to those who might apply for the available grant funds. Most often (from what I've seen) there is typically already a draft of the grant policy(s) available for review for those in the public who would be interested in seeing the proposed grant policy in its draft form and/or who might additionally want to submit their comments before a final policy has been established by the grantor. My question is whether someone who is intending on applying for a potential grant might have some better chance of receiving the grant if they were to submit comments during the public comment period. Or will their grant application be considered equally regardless of whether they might submit comments?

Hard to know - I think the comment period is meant more for someone who objects to some part of the process.

If that's the case I might go ahead then and comment that I object to the public comment part of the process.

If you are the person who is applying...I'd back off on comments. Better to have supporters of the project voice their support.

Public comment is meant for both pro and con comments. Any Gov project normally has a time frame where both can be presented.

Okay. Probably good advice, thanks.
