Successful applicants should have an established financial structure which allows them to manage and handle funds – either within their organization or through a fiscal agent or sponsor.
Groups with their own EIN and fiscal management infrastructure do not need a fiscal agent or sponsor. Groups without these will need a fiscal sponsor, and will need to provide a copy of the agreement as part of their application.
Funds cannot be distributed through individuals; there must be some degree of fiscal organization and administrative capacity.
Individuals and for-profit entities are not eligible to apply nor serve as fiscal agents.
