Arts, Culture, and History:
Recognizing the positive impact arts, cultural and historical organizations have on a community, consideration is given to innovative and high-quality applications in this area.

People in Need:
This category is generally, but not exclusively for human service programs that work with people in need. Examples include feeding, housing, financial assistance, programs serving the homelessness, and programs for recently incarcerated individuals.
