- Partnering with at least one other nonprofit organization (from a short list of types of orgs)
- Leads to the engagement of underrepresented communities. (Initiatives that involve two or more underrepresented constituencies will be given greater priority.)
- Organize participants around issues important to them
- Contribute to achievement of goals for the betterment of the neighborhood
- Have a "WOW factor."
And the lucky recipients get to do this with a maximum grant of $2,500! (yes only two zeros)
I know good things are suppose to come in small packages but this seems a little extreme.
