There are no direct costs to the agency to participate in the Project. NACDL will be making the database software and related support available to selected organizations without any fees or costs. NACDL will also be providing associated training on the operation and use of the database. Organizations, may, however, have costs associated with ensuring adequate technical infrastructure and staff to operate the database. As a part of this Project NACDL will NOT be providing hardware or funds to selected organizations.
Interest forms are reviewed on a rolling basis as Project capacity permits. Only one application should be submitted per organization or agency.
As Project capacity permits, NACDL will follow up with an application survey and set up a meeting. Because this project requires certain legal, technical and practical infrastructure, all applications will be reviewed to assess the organization/agency’s suitability to utilize the resources of this Project. As a result, all applicants will receive notification from the Project within 30 days of their submission regarding NACDL’s assessment of their readiness, as well as feedback on steps applicants can take to improve their prospect for future consideration.
