  • Demonstrate new approaches and techniques for solving critical community issues that are based on best practices and evidence-based research.
  • Strengthen the internal functioning of an organization, expand its services or form partnerships to better meet its mission.
  • Are rooted in the organization's communications, strategic, programmatic or other plan.
