Participating in the NCSA Program for Radio and TV

ISBA Non-Commercial Sustaining Announcement Program (NCSA)
The NCSA program is designed to help organizations that operate in the public interest, such as non-profits and state agencies, get their messages heard in an organized manner. Here's how it works:
  • A non-profit or government agency funds the ISBA to distribute their public education message. 
  • The agency provides pre-recorded spots that the ISBA distributes to its member stations. 
  • The agency then receives advertising time donated by ISBA broadcast stations. 
  • Station affidavits confirm when and where the message has aired.
