Resources for Grant Applicants

Applying for NAC grants can be a highly competitive process for limited funds. The strongest applications demonstrate a thoughtful planning process that includes an understanding of the 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.

NAC recommends that you read the FY18-19 Grant Guidelines thoroughly before beginning to work on your grant application. All NAC grant applications must be submitted through our online grants management system. Follow the online instructions to register, create your applicant profile, answer narrative questions, complete the budget section, upload support material and submit the completed application.
