2010-2011 RLIS Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC)
On Wednesday, September 15, 2010, the 2010–2011 RLIS Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC) form for the 2010–2011 RLIS Grant is scheduled to open in eGrants. The 2010–2011 RLIS ADC form initiates the application process for the 2010–2011 RLIS Grant application. Eligible applicants use the ADC form to identify how they will apply in the grant application for each funding source. The information that is submitted on this form is considered to be binding. Applicants are advised to complete the process of obtaining local board approval, as appropriate, and ensuring accuracy before submitting the form. The RLIS ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2010–2011 RLIS Grant application.
