Submit Notice of Funding Opportunity Today

The NOFO form, or Notice of Funding Opportunity Form, is an easy way for organizations and agencies across Nevada to input details of their funding opportunity and have it shared out to the rest of the state. If you are a state agency with pass-through funding and available subawards, submit the subaward opportunity by filling out the NOFO form on our website. You will be asked for information such as:

  • Unique Entity Identifier
  • Your Agency
  • Grant/Funding Opportunity Name
  • Project Category
  • Who is Eligible to Apply
  • Application Link
  • Brief Description
  • Opportunity Close Date

Once submitted and reviewed the subaward opportunity will be listed on our Grants Opportunities page.
By adding these opportunities to the database and making them easily viewable and sortable to all eligible entities, OFA helps to ensure that no federal funding is left unused.
If you manage state funded awards or foundation funded awards the process is the same. Please fill out the details of the funding opportunity to the NOFO form on our website.
