Each year over $1 billion in grant funding is distributed by federal, state and foundation grantmakers. In addition to this annual money, the federal government has made over $6 trillion in stimulus funds available over the past 16 months. However, simply knowing that the money exists does not bring you any closer funding your community broadband initiative, securing your hybrid learning environment, advancing your smart transportation project, or accommodating providers and patients through telehealth devices.

Join experts from Grants Office and Insight Public Sector to learn more about the latest technology you will need in a post-Pandemic world, specific grants that will pay for it and how Insight is teaming with Grants Office to make sure you have grant specialists available to you for your grantseeking efforts. This session has something for everyone - we urge you to attend whether you are an institution of higher education, K-12 school, state or local agency, healthcare provider or tribal entity.

The new American Rescue Plan stimulus bill provides a massive $350 billion dollars of direct aid to state and local governments. As funding is beginning to make its way to government agencies and organizations across the country, it comes with a wide range of allowable uses – including training and skill building for underemployed workers, healthcare providers, public health officials, election workers, educators, students, and many others. Of course, all of this training is being delivered online.  

Join Grants Office and Cornerstone for a review of the new American Rescue Plan state and local grant funds that can help agencies across the public sector get their teams and constituents the training they need to thrive in 2021 and beyond. During this session, we’ll also review tips for leveraging these programs, and highlights of how organizations are leveraging on-demand learning from Cornerstone to make it all happen.

Computer Science (CS) and Computational Thinking (CT) are increasingly essential skills within students' college and career readiness toolbelt. While a clear pathway to a STEM career may be top of mind for many, CS and CT competencies have non-STEM applications, too – from developing models to analyze political behavior data to sound design and production within a music hall or theater. Yet despite this broad potential for future career pathway relevance, less than half of K12 districts in the United States offer any form of meaningful CS or CT course pathway. Students from rural, low-income, and/or ethnic and racial minorities are especially disadvantaged as their districts often lack the resources to start such programs. Fortunately, over the last 5 years, grant funding support for CS and CT programming has substantially increased. For those who know where to look, these funds can provide the much-needed support to launch a school or district-wide CS and CT initiative. 

Join Grants Office and special guests from HP, Microsoft TEALS, DigiGirlz, and Airband as we discuss how your district can leverage the plethora of public grant funding available, figure out which of the grant-fundable HP devices are best suited to your needs, and how you can get these devices connected to facilitate innovative computer science learning within your classrooms.

As a bonus, following the event, all registrants will receive an exclusive white paper featuring grant-seeking tips and tricks for your next technology-enabled computer science project. If your district is interested in starting or expanding its computer science offerings, you won’t want to miss out on this fast-paced and informative event!

Congress has passed three bills in the past month, appropriating 2.4 trillion dollars to help states and local communities respond to the coronavirus pandemic and alleviate the severe economic distress that has come with it. Among the unemployment insurance benefits and checks to individuals are billions of dollars in grants for healthcare, education, and public safety. And most of these funds are intended to be distributed quickly.

Join the Grants Office team for an (admittedly wonky) analysis of the grant funding included in all three bills. We'll cover the parameters and amounts of new funding that will be available and discuss how these funds will be distributed across the public sector landscape.

As with the stimulus grants of 2008, preparation now can make the difference in getting the funding you need to meet your community's critical needs!

An entire subset of federal grant programs provides millions of dollars in support of Tribal projects, and because they are more narrowly focused than most other grants, they may also be less competitive. But in order to tap into these funds for your Tribal initiatives, it’s important to know where to find them and how to structure your application to win.

This is especially true for technology-rich projects, which fit with a number of these grant programs, but only as a means of achieving the educational, healthcare, and public safety objectives of the programs.

Technology is playing in increasingly prominent role in literacy initiatives across the nation. While such initiatives are producing promising results, we often see those districts with the greatest literacy challenges experience the greatest struggle in paying for new technology solutions that could aid in improving student literacy. As these districts endeavor to make ends meet, literacy-supporting software and equipment take a back seat to things like curriculum development, teacher training, and classroom supplies. Fortunately, there are grants that can help these high-need districts find the funding they require to make their technology-enhanced literacy program a reality!

The Department of Education’s Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) grant program is expected to open this spring, and supports high-quality programs designed to develop and improve literacy skills for children and students from birth through 12th grade in high-need local educational agencies and schools.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft and Connection Public Sector Solutions for an in-depth look at this literacy-focused, technology-friendly grant program as well as some of the latest literacy supporting technology on the market.

Every year, nearly $50 billion dollars in grant funds are awarded by private and corporate foundations – with many of these dollars going to support education initiatives. For those who have only considered state or federal competitive grant opportunities, this means that you could be missing out on a number of relevant funding sources. Foundation funders are often less constrained in their grant making, and as a result, can be quite technology-friendly as well. Further, foundation grants are a great way for staff at schools or districts with little to no grant-seeking experience to hone their skills.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft and Connection Public Sector Solutions for a fast-paced review of tips for developing proposals in response to foundation funding opportunities, in addition to some of the most popular education technologies available to districts. Whether you’re looking to fund a few devices for a single classroom or a larger education technology initiative spanning your entire district or school, this session will give you the foundation you need to find and compete for grants from a wide variety of foundation funders!

Funding for classroom technology is a common feature of many grant awards, and the federal government alone makes over $500 billion in grants each year. But how can a school district that hasn’t done a lot of grantseeking and doesn’t have a full time (or even part time) grantwriter get started with grants to support their goals for technology and student achievement?

Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft and Connection Public Sector Solutions for a fast-paced introduction to educational technology funding and highlights of the innovative ways technology is empowering students and teachers, personalizing their educational experiences, and expanding their access to the world. Whether you’re looking for funding to develop technology applications for your school, work with teachers to integrate technology into their instructional practices, or access technology for your own classroom, this session will give you the foundation you need to find and compete for grants from a wide variety of funders.

In ways we could only imagine a decade ago, technology is improving the delivery of services across state and local governments. Isolated systems can now work together, we have the capacity to capture and analyze data like never before, and information can be delivered into our hands exactly how and when we need it.

But all this advancement comes at a price, sometimes a steep one, and funding to support innovation can seem elusive. Fortunately, there are a number of federal and state grant programs that have been specifically created to support innovation in specific public sector applications, and learning about them is the first step in accessing them!

Join Grants Office CEO and special guests from NetApp for a fast-paced look at how leading communities have been able to fund innovation and the technologies that have dramatically improved outcomes across government. As a thank you for participating in this event, every government representative who registers will receive a free Grants Office Funding Opportunity Report, developed just for you with information you provide and detailing the grant opportunities that could fund your community’s plans for innovation.

Technology is playing in increasingly prominent role in literacy initiatives across the nation, and although results are promising, districts with the greatest literacy challenges often struggle the most to pay for the hardware and software they need to move the needle on student literacy. Beyond the equipment, there is also a need to complement the technology with faculty training, curriculum development, and student orientation – all of which stretches existing resources even further.

But there are grants that can help strapped districts find the funding they need to make a technology-enhanced literacy program a reality. The Department of Education’s Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program supports high-quality programs designed to develop and improve literacy skills for children and students from birth through 12th grade in high-need local educational agencies and schools.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from Microsoft and PCMG for an in-depth look at literacy-focused grant programs, including the IAL grants, and the technology solutions they support.

Healthcare providers currently function in an environment where medical inflation and increased financial risk combine to create razor thin operating margins. In order to survive, it is essential for these providers to understand federal funding priorities and effectively target grant money to fill in the gaps. This is especially true when it comes to the increasing transparency in healthcare that is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be securely stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payors, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are researching a cure for cancer, documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.

Today, stakeholders often start collecting large volumes of data for internal use or a specific purpose. Suddenly, a new state law is passed or a federal regulation is put in place that requires such data to quickly be reported and shared in any number of different ways. In order to thrive in such a fluid regulatory and operational environment, these various stakeholders must find a way to fund and plan for agility in an era that demands flexibility.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at how project-based grants may be used to increase the agility and flexibility of your healthcare data. The session will include a discussion around specific technology solutions and best-practices for building them into a project that is grant-friendly.
