Priority is given to programs that:

  • promote individual and family economic security;
  • increase food security and access to nutritious food;
  • decrease homelessness through programs that promote diversion and intervention.

Preference is given to programs that:

  • seek to eliminate racism and societal inequities;
  • incorporate the voices of clients/consumers in planning;
