What are grant categories?
The NCS is the primary grant writing organization.
Each grant is assigned a category and a deadline. For each category, there is a guide that outlines all the requirements and the information to be included (e.g. fee, scope of work, grant-seeking guidelines, evaluation criteria).
It’s your responsibility to provide the information and instructions relevant to the grant category. You must keep the requirements detailed and concise to ensure you meet the requirements.
Please use this checklist to help you write a grant:
The NCS recognizes the importance of the grant categories. We work hard to ensure each grant category is as transparent or more detailed than possible.
