FAQs

  • Does LA n Sync support applicants or applicant teams outside of L.A. County?
  • LA n Sync’s primary goal is to support applications benefiting L.A. County. However, Sync collaborates with partners outside of L.A. County when there is a significant participation from or benefit to those within L.A. County, and if the collaboration increases the competitive nature of the application. In the past, we have supported multi-county, multi-state, and statewide applications for funding when there is significant benefit to the residents of L.A. County.
