The Foundation awards grants of up to $10,000 in the areas of workforce development, health and human services, housing, education, community development, the environment, and culture and the arts. Special emphasis is placed on those projects that focus on the less-advantaged and/or underserved population.

• The demonstrated needs of the target population to be served
• The size of the population in the Bank's market area to be impacted by the grant
• The projected impact of the project on the population served by the applicant
