Applications may be submitted by a state or local agency, tribe, non-profit organization, or citizens’ group. Federal agencies, including the National Park Service, may apply only in collaboration with a non-federal partner. RTCA does not provide financial assistance to support project implementation. Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their project with RTCA staff before sending in an application. It can be helpful to schedule an advance field visit by our staff to best understand how RTCA can be of assistance. Please return your completed application to the program leader for the state in which your project is located.
