Their Planning and Project Officer Melissa Branconnier says it supports a broad range of locally planned projects. She explains they’re basically focused on neighborhood renewal and capacity so they like to see projects that support and provide services to at risk marginalized populations or ones that need more services than most like seniors, youth, low income, newcomers and they like to see things where its positive community impact so beautification, places where there’s gatherings of people, environmentally friendly stuff, so they really are quite broad as long as it drives community renewal and revitalization.
