Applications open for organizations seeking federal grants


Applications are open for a Nevada grant funding program that matches federal support, the state announced Tuesday.

According to a press release from the governor’s office, the Office of Procurement, Coordination and Grants Management’s annual grant matching program has $1 million to support up to 50% of a federal grant requirement.

Eligible organizations include nonprofits, tribal governments, local governments, and state agencies. To be eligible, applicants must have exhausted all other potential sources of matching funds.

Applications for total federal grants of $150,000 or more are due by March 18. All other requests are due by June 1st. Applications will be reviewed upon submission and assigned throughout the program period on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on status.

The Nevada Legislature piloted the Grant Matching Fund in the 2019 legislative session and made it permanent in 2021. Previous winners include the North Las Vegas Fire Department for a matching grant through of the Department of Homeland Security, according to the Office of Procurement, Coordination and Grants Management.
