Awards will be presented in three categories, honoring neighborhood-based organizations and collaborations. Winning organizations in each category will receive a monetary award.

Selection will be based on the extent of grassroots leadership, community engagement, partnerships, impact and if these activities can be replicated. The Awards Committee is composed of neighborhood and community leaders.
