Grant for Organizations

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.  Grant reviewers look for a clear demonstration that methods are in place to monitor, assess, promote, and evaluate the project.

All NAC grant applications are submitted through GO Smart™, our online grants management system that guides you through the application process by combination of help screens, links to instructions, and checks for math and other errors. Follow GO Smart™, instructions to register, create your applicant profile, answer narrative questions, complete the budget section, upload support material and submit the completed application.
