Additional Information of Eligibility:
To be eligible to apply for these grants, applicants must fall into one of two categories: (1) national entities; or (2) local entities.

1.

National Entities :For the purposes of this SGA, applicants qualify as national entities if they are private nonprofit organizations that have the following characteristics: (a) they deliver services through networks of local affiliates, coalition members, or other established partners (such as a network of affiliated community or faith-based organizations); and (b) their local affiliates, coalition members, or other established partners have the ability to provide services in 4 or more States.

These entities, along with their partners, are expected to implement projects in multiple communities across the country.
