About NLC Grant Access

Introducing a new benefit for NLC members

You asked—we answered. NLC is excited to introduce Grant Access, an easy and free tool exclusive for our members to find grants. Our members have requested a way to secure the funding they need, so we’re pleased to give each of our member cities a unique login for this helpful service.

Each city gets one login, so you’ll designate someone on your staff to be your point person. Anyone who works for your city will get to share this login to search for funding from over 7,000 grants. Grant Access has 20 different grant categories from federal, state, and foundation sources. Once you find a grant that suits your needs, you’ll have a direct link to grant applications.

Grant-searching tools are expensive and hiring a grant specialist is a big investment. With your NLC membership, you get a Grant Access login for free. If your city is not an NLC member but you think this valuable resource would be a great reason to join, email membership@nlc.org and take the first step to becoming a part of NLC and immediately reaping the benefits of membership.

NLC is granting you access to build a better city. Take advantage!
