Declare your Project

Apply for Grant Funding


The grant application for design-build Freedom By Design Projects is live! You can apply for grants throughout the year, but applications are collected March 15, May 15, and November 15.

These grants, funded by Freedom By Design in partnership with NCARB, enable Freedom By Design programs to purchase needed materials and supplies for their community service projects. To qualify for a grant from NCARB your project must be design-build – this also means your project qualifies for experience hours under AXP!

Before you apply for grant funding, don’t forget to Declare Your Project! Applications for projects that have not yet been declared cannot be considered for grant funding.
