Who is Eligible?

Check the guidelines for each grant program for specific eligibility requirements.

In most cases Nebraska organizations may apply for funding if they:

  • are incorporated as a nonprofit organization, and are physically located in the State of Nebraska, with articles of incorporation current and on file in the Nebraska Secretary of State's office; or they are a subdivision of government, school or religious organization with appropriate legal status.
  • have a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN).
  • have received federal tax-exempt status. Religious organizations, schools and divisions of government must submit a copy of the sales tax exemption certificate from the State Department of Revenue.

Unsure about the nonprofit status of your organization? Guidestar is a listing of nonprofit organizations that file Form 990 with the IRS.
Note: If your nonprofit organization does not have a budget larger than $25,000, and you have not filed a Form 990, then your organization will not be listed on Guidestar.

To confirm your nonprofit organization is incorporated in the State of Nebraska, visit the Secretary of State’s website
