This link will take you directly to the GO Smart™ online management system. All NAC grant applications must be submitted using GO Smart™ by the stated submission deadline. For many grants this includes the Narrative Questions (staying within the character limit for each question), a budget section and required Support Material section. If you have questions, NAC staff is available to assist you.
Applying for NAC’s grants can be a highly competitive process for limited funds. The strongest applications demonstrate a deliberate and thoughtful planning process that includes an understanding of the population or community to benefit from the proposed project, an assessment of needs, and a concise explanation of how the project was designed and how it will be funded.
