A community is definitely in the best position to do a risk-assessment, so no comment on that. Good wishes for the proposal.

On another note, in the last couple of years we have widely explored remote events/online events like never before. New knowledge have been gained, and over-all it has been fantastic.

I believe we should continue to work on and strengthen this online program model as much as possible, even after the pandemic.

Currently, there is another thing to note in the Conference Grant model. Conference grant is a long process and a conference is generally conducted 5–6 months after the proposal. In an uncertain time (possible next wave etc) it is very difficult to plan things so early. I have read that this is noted in the proposal.
