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.

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.

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!

Knowledge of computing is an integral part of any modern STEM career. Unfortunately, lack of funding can put computing and computational thinking education on the backburner within K-12 schools. To make matters worse, research has found that when computational thinking and computer science IS taught in pre-K-12 classrooms, it is often done without consideration for age-appropriate teaching and learning methods. To address this gap within the pedagogy and to better prepare students to participate in the future STEM workforce, the National Science Foundation provides competitive grant awards though their STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) program.

This opportunity supports applied research and development efforts related to building an evidence base for effective pedagogy and pedagogical environments that will make the integration of computing within STEM disciplines more age-appropriate and relevant to pre-K-12 STEM education. As such, it is an excellent opportunity for collaborative proposals between k-12 school districts and research faculty at institutions of higher education.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft, Connection Public Sector Solutions, and Lenovo for a look at innovative computing education technologies, the requirements for application to this program, and general tips for preparing an NSF grant application. If you're thinking about applying to STEM+C in the spring of 2018, you won't want to miss this event!

The National Science Foundation's Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST - Due September 5, 2017) and Advanced Technological Education (ATE - Due October 5, 2017) grant programs provide significant funding to projects that pair higher education institutions with K-12 (ITEST) and industry partners (ATE). Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and Grants Development Consultant Elizabeth Evans for a look at the requirements and potential benefits of these two high-profile NSF programs and the Grants Office resources that are available to help you develop a highly competitive application to one or both programs. If you're thinking about applying to ITEST or ATE this year, you won't want to miss this event!

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.

Do you wish you could do more to provide technology-based learning opportunities for students through your after-school and summer programs? In fact, technology is playing an increasingly important role in keeping students connected to school resources and faculty, especially during out-of-school periods, and it’s important to maintain that connection through after school programming as well.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from Microsoft and PCMG as we pull apart the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant Program in several states, to better understand what technology it funds and how that funding works. We’ll also review some of the innovative technologies that are transforming the after school experience for students and keeping them connected to their schools.

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.

Access to data where and when it is needed is more than just an IT concern. Increasingly, it is an operational necessity, with implications for response times, situational intelligence, safety of personnel, and overall mission execution. Unfortunately, the technologies that can provide these benefits are outside the normal budget parameters of many public safety and emergency management agencies. 

The good news is that federal and state grant funds can help make up the difference between what you need and what you can afford, and CDW and VMware have teamed up with Grants Office to help you take advantage of these funding opportunities. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from VMware and CDW as we review the grant-fundable applications of virtualization in a public safety context. We’ll review funding from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and state sources as well.
