Funds are administered by the National Media Market and Conference, on the basis of applicant suitability, demonstrated need, and order received. Preference will also be given to local applicants. Once all registration funding has been awarded, this application will be closed.

If initial qualifications are deemed suitable by members of the NMM advisory board, applicants may be asked to substantiate need with a letter of verification.
