ACT NOW - California

What is ACT NOW?

ACT NOW allows NRCS to immediately approve and obligate a ranked application in a designated ranking pool when an eligible application meets or exceeds a State-established minimum ranking score without waiting for all applications to be ranked and preapproved in that ranking pool.

Applications eligible for any of the identified ACT NOW ranking pools listed below will be accepted on a continuous sign-up basis in the order received until the applicable application deadline. Any application that ranks at or above the State-established threshold ranking score will be preapproved as funds are available.

After the last ranking deadline, if funding is still available, applications with ranking scores less than the State-established threshold ranking score may be preapproved in ranking order. Eligible applications will be obligated within 42 business days of receipt.
