School systems, community groups and neighborhood associations (a group of citizens living within specific geographic boundaries who are organized to oversee issues that affect their neighborhood) are also eligible to apply for project support which meet the funding criteria described in the Neighborhood Program Fund (NPF) category
Cultural organizations are defined as institutions with a mission to preserve a body of knowledge, stories, beliefs and ideas with the purpose of educating the masses to transmit a body of history to future generations. The primary mission does not include presenting or producing the arts, however the institution incorporates the arts as a mechanism to support its mission.
