Monica, who, in addition to all of her other talents, is big on statistical data analysis, sent the following information and link to one of our volunteers. I thought this would be a good thing to share here.
- National bond grant rate in FY18 (first 8 months): 47.1%; median bond amount: $7,500
- Stewart bond grant rate in FY18 (first 8 months): 44.5%; median bond amount: $7,500
- SIFI Stewart bond grant rate since we launched (April 2017): 40.6% (I think things have improved. Our grant rate is 57.1% using data from May-November 2018). SIFI Stewart median bond amount: $7,500 since April 2017 (I think this has gotten worse. Our median bond amount is $9,000 using data from May-November 2018)
