If you wish to apply for both sub-categories, you must submit two separate applications.

Stage 1 of the application process will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and you will require information about the project location, the items you wish to apply for, and an estimate of project cost. 

If your application is successful in stage 1, you will be invited to make a full application which will require more project details.
