Applicant Eligibility
Local governments located in the United States and its territories and participating as a Team member in NIST’s 2016 GCTC. For purposes of this program, a local government is defined as any incorporated political subdivision of a state that is composed of the citizens of a designated geographic area and which performs certain government functions on a local level; local governments include counties and municipalities such as cities, towns, villages, and boroughs. An eligible organization may work individually or propose subawards or contracts with others effectively forming a team or consortium. Only one application will be considered per GCTC Team. A GCTC Team that includes more than one eligible local government member must designate one of the eligible local government team member as the lead responsible for submitting the application and, if selected, for receiving and administering the award, with the other members participating through subawards or contracts. More information about the 2016 GCTC, including how to register to participate, can be found at
