Not Funded:
- Lobbying organizations and/or organizations whose primary mission is advocacy
- Salaries and other operating/administrative costs
- Projects related to regulation enforcement
- Capital investments beyond those necessary for project execution
- Applications cannot be signed or submitted by a person who is or was a "Designated Individual" as defined by NC General Statute Section 120C-100(a)(2) at the time of submission of the application.

The process begins with applicants submitting a letter of inquiry (LOI) through the NCCF online system, starting October 1. LOIs are accepted twice each year. The committee will only review up to 50 LOIs each round, so it is important to note that if 50 LOIs have been received prior to the deadlines below, the cycle will close at that time.

Submissions received after any cycle has closed may be included for review in the next cycle. Additionally, some requests may be postponed for consideration at a future meeting. If the Grant Committee has elected to postpone the review of any submission, the applicant will be notified.

Everyone who submits a letter of inquiry will be notified of the outcome. Based on the committee's review, up to 30 applicants will be invited to submit full proposals.
