  • Supports specific, short term project(s) that promise measurable results to address one or more of the above focus areas
  • Represents innovative and promising ideas to meet stated objectives
  • Includes community partners to serve the target population
  • Demonstrates careful planning and a strong likelihood of success, including plans to sustain the project
