There are no direct costs to the agency to participate in the Project. We make the database software and related support available to selected organizations without any fees or costs. We also provide associated training on the operation and use of the application. Organizations, may, however, have costs associated with ensuring adequate technical infrastructure and staff to operate the application. We do not provide hardware or funds to organizations.
We review interest forms and applications on a rolling basis as Project capacity permits.
As Project capacity permits, NACDL will invite organizations who express interest to apply to the Project. 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.
