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.

The use of video surveillance in policing has a long and established history. However, recent events involving officers and citizens, fueled by the Internet and proliferation of social media, have converged to catapult body-worn cameras (BWCs) and other video monitoring techniques into the public consciousness. As the numerous benefits associated with BWCs, in-car video and the evidence it provides comes to light, the law enforcement community and the public they serve are reaching a consensus that BWCs and other video applications are a core component of 21st Century policing and beyond.

As the demand for such video technology increases exponentially over the next several years, police departments and other law enforcement agencies must find a way to fund the implementation of BWC programs. A comprehensive BWC program is more than purchasing cameras, it involves the crafting and implementation of policies and procedures, officer training, digital evidence management and public outreach.

Join Grants Office, LLC and WatchGuard Video as we explore various grant programs that will fund BWCs, as well as other solutions such as in-car video. In addition to gaining an understanding of the funding available and tips to secure grants, participants will learn about the latest and greatest video technology available to public safety agencies.

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.

WATCH THE REPLAY HERE: Grants that can fund technology in its many forms can also fund measures to secure that technology and the data it contains, but for whatever reason, IT security is often left out of grant budgets and as a result left either to the grant recipient to pay or not integrated at all – either of which can leave the organization vulnerable to security breaches and the liability that goes along with them!

Join Grants Office and special guests from Century Link as we review strategies for building security into your organization’s grant proposals and a look at some of the most technology-friendly grant programs in government and education. We’ll also highlight VMware’s new Disaster Recovery as a Service and other solutions that can help you keep your data safe and available.
