In addition, the WPN plans to award two small grants. The focus and eligibility of the small grants are the same as listed above, with the exception that a financial compilation will be accepted in lieu of an audit. 

Preference will be given to innovative programs that serve children from birth to 5th grade, that address the needs of underserved populations, and that demonstrate collaboration with other nonprofits, faith-based organizations, business entities, and/or government. Preference will also be given to groups that can leverage matching funds on the federal, state, or local level.
