- a specific need (addressing violence in high-risk communities)
- a delivery method (seminar, healing circle, cultural camp)
- an emphasis on leveraging partnerships and additional resources
- partners could include federal, provincial, municipal or community governments, but may also extend to communities and non-government organizations
- tangible results with strong community participation
- a sustainable best-practice project that could be shared and used elsewhere.

- administrative costs cannot exceed 15% of the total approved amount

- for a proposal to be approved, all assessment criteria must be met and fully completed
- recipients will be asked to submit an annual report (PDF) outlining the project's results, number of participants and details around how the project fulfilled the priorities as per the funding proposal. The deadline for this report is May 31, 2017.
