To qualify for support under this program, the proposed project must meet the following requirements:

  • Promote, encourage, and practice voluntarism and the use of volunteers
  • Be of a preventive nature in order to:
    • enhance, strengthen, and stabilize family and community life
    • improve the ability of persons to identify and act on their own social needs
    • help prevent family or community social breakdown
    • prevent the development of a crisis that may require major intervention or rehabilitative measures in the event that the early symptoms of a social breakdown occur
