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.

For any city or county, successfully implementing a major technology initiative demands solid strategy and effective tools to make it happen. Fortunately, your partners at Insight Public Sector and NetApp and have brought together resources and best practices to help make launching your technology project a whole lot easier.

Join a group of leaders from NetApp, Insight Public Sector, and Grants Office for an end-to-end discussion of best practices for developing, funding, procuring, and deploying your next technology project, and we’ll be using an example you may be dealing with yourself: a department-wide law enforcement body-worn camera rollout.

We’ll be discussing:

* Developing a 360-degree project plan for your technology project: how Insight Public Sector works with municipal customers like yours to develop winning project plans

* Funding your project from internal and external sources: how the NetApp Grants Support program can help you identify new sources of funding

* Procuring the technology and services when you need them and at the right price: how the US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance enables you to easily and confidently acquire everything you need at the best overall supplier government pricing

* Deploying your technology initiative with fewer snags: how Insight Public Sector and NetApp cut costs, reduce risks, and bring industry-leading experience to all levels of government

If you're looking to streamline your next technology rollout, especially if you’ve been looking into a body-worn camera initiative, you won't want to miss this fast-paced and informative webinar!

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.

With thousands of grant programs becoming available each year, it can be a challenge to stay on top of the best opportunities for local schools and municipal agencies, leaving you in a constant state of frenzy to make a deadline or, worse, just having missed a critical window.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock for a look at ten prominent programs that may provide a foundation for your 2015 local grantseeking plans and a review of tips for organizing your community’s grants development efforts. 

Mar 11 2014 2:00PM

Technology has been promising to transform teaching and learning for decades, and indeed in some schools, it has. But tight budgets for equipment and insufficient training resources have kept many schools from fully realizing the vision of technology-enabled classrooms.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from Panasonic for a rundown of the best educational technology funders and tips for making your proposal stand out, whichever program you plan to apply to. If you’ve been looking for ways to get technology into classrooms across your district, you won’t want to miss this event!
