Eligible Nevada organizations seeking federal grants may qualify for state matching funds

CARSON CITY, NV – March 01, 2022

Today, the Governor’s Office - in collaboration with the Office of Grant Procurement, Coordination and Management within the Department of Administration - is inviting eligible organizations seeking federal grants to apply for a state-funded match program.

The state’s Grant Matching Program offers $1 million annually. Funds can be used to satisfy up to 50 percent of federal grant match requirements. Eligible organizations include nonprofits, tribal governments, local governments, and state agencies. To qualify, applicants must have exhausted all other potential sources of matching funds.

The Nevada Grant Office is now accepting applications. To learn more and apply, interested applicants can visit the Nevada Grant Office website.

Applications for total federal grant awards of $150,000 or greater are due by March 18, 2022. All other applications are due by June 1, 2022. Applications will be reviewed upon submission and awarded throughout the program period on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Grant Matching Program was established as a pilot program by the Nevada Legislature in 2019 and made permanent by legislation passed in the 2021 session.
