- Late night mini grant requirement: On Thursday, Friday or Saturday night after 9 pm OR an event directly linked to a high-risk time (ex: game watch).
- Addresses McWell's four programming priorities: Facilitates social connection, Provides health education, Enhances emotional well-being, Increases care for community.
