Submit Your Intent to Apply for the 2018 National Quality Award

The Intent to Apply process for the 2018 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award application cycle is now open. 

The deadline to submit an Intent to Apply payment is Thursday, November 9 at 8 p.m. Eastern. The Intent to Apply is not mandatory to apply for the Quality Award, but members who submit an Intent to Apply benefit by saving money on their overall application fee and receive weekly tips on submitting a successful application.

Please note the following: 

  • All applicants should read the application packet in full before submitting an Intent to Apply payment. 
  • If your center last received a Bronze or Silver Quality Award in 2015 and has not submitted an application meeting minimum requirements since then, this is your last year to submit an application at the next level. If you do not submit an application this year, you will be considered a past recipient and have to resubmit at the Bronze level if your center chooses to participate again in the program. For more information, please review the recertification policy here.   
  • The National Quality Award website has numerous resources for applicants. Please make sure to visit our website at to learn about the latest updates to the program. 
If you would like to review your center's award history or have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
