Communities across the country are looking for funding to deal with the growing opioid epidemic. Through the traditional appropriations process and the recent passage of the SUPPORT Act, the federal government is planning significant investments in fighting the crisis over the next decade. But there are so many components to the problem that organizations are often overwhelmed and often times don't know where to start. Funding can be found across the federal landscape regardless of whether you are a healthcare provider delivering prevention and treatment services, a public health agency conducting surveillance of the problem or first responders and public safety personnel dealing with it on the front lines.

Join Grants Office and special guests from the City of New Orleans Health Department as we review upcoming funding sources for opioid-related projects, offer tips to increase your chances of winning, and discuss technology-solutions that can be used by communities to tackle the opioid crisis!

Whether you’re involved in law enforcement, public health, treatment or prevention efforts – you’ll find something useful for you in this face-paced and informative event!

The landscape of modern law enforcement leverages a wide array of video tools, including video surveillance, in-car and body-worn cameras. The reasons public agencies adopt such video technology are much the same as those that prompted the first runs of videotape-based surveillance in the 1960s – namely, the expansion of monitoring and evidence-collection capabilities. Today, video technology is considered a crucial tool for law enforcement activities – particularly as its availability and list of use-cases continue to expand.

As demand for such video technology increases, law enforcement and other public safety agencies must find a way to pay for upfront and ongoing maintenance costs. A comprehensive 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 as we explore the Body-worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program from strategy to application to highlights of past years’ winning projects.

For years, grant funding for K-12 school safety had been largely reactionary - meaning, an incident needed to occur before funds were made available. The tragic loss of life at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in early 2018, and the subsequent March for Our Lives rally in Washington D.C., however, acted as a tipping point. With a nation crying out that "enough is enough" both the US Congress and several state's legislatures have taken action to appropriate grant funding for preventative school safety solutions.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp and Tech Data as we cover state and federal agencies with grant funding specifically for school safety initiatives, including the open School Violence Prevention Program. We'll also review how partnerships with public safety agencies can be leveraged to receive additional state and federal funding, and discuss examples of grant-fundable campus safety technologies.

If your school is in need of technology-enabled safety solutions, especially fixed video surveillance, you won’t want to miss this fast-paced and informative session!

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.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from PCMG and Dell for a look at the landscape of Tribal-focused grants and the technology solutions they support. We’ll also discuss steps to developing an impactful technology-rich project that addresses your community’s need and objectives, as well as tips for making your proposal truly competitive.

If you're looking to get a Tribal project funded this year, you won't want to miss this fast-paced and informative webinar!

In applications across the country, video as a tool for public safety and justice has increased officer safety, improved community relations, and supported convictions, and as a result, we see cameras cropping up all over – on buildings, in cruisers, on uniforms, and even on handguns. But adding new cameras, especially rolling out video initiatives across an entire department, can be expensive, and even if you can afford the cameras, the existing IT infrastructure may not support them. This is a common issue that can lead to chicken-and-egg discussions about upgrading infrastructure or buying cameras and can present a serious barrier to deploying the video tools you know will advance your public safety mission.

Fortunately, there are resources available to help make your video deployment possible, without breaking the budget.

Join Grants Office and special guests from the SentiVault team as we discuss a two-pronged approach to solving the budget-infrastructure dilemma. First, Grants Office consultants will show you how to find and access video-friendly grants to fund the purchase and deployment of cameras and the infrastructure they need to run optimally. Second, the SentiVault team will provide guidelines for planning and configuring a video initiative, so that it uses only the bandwidth and storage it needs and keeps operating costs down.

If you’re considering starting or expanding a video initiative this year, you won’t want to miss this event!

Special Note: Everyone who registers for this event will receive a PDF copy of the 2018 Guide to Grants that Fund Law Enforcement Video, full of information on video-friendly grants and tips for getting your video project funded.

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. We’ll also discuss tips for making your proposal truly competitive. If you're looking to upgrade your district’s literacy program, you won't want to miss this fast-paced and informative webinar!

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!

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.

Increasingly, campus officials are seeking to employ video-based security initiatives to improve student safety and reduce crime across their campuses, and led by the Department of Justice’s Grants to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking on Campus Program, a number of grantmakers are supporting their efforts. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp for a look at how video is making campuses safer and what funding sources universities and colleges can access to help them pay for it. We will also cover some strategies for articulating a case for campus security enhancements based on the benefits that they will provide to the institution, it students and faculty, and the wider community.

Virtualization is being funded on campuses across the country. However, because there is no single “virtualization” grant program, universities that wish to obtain funding for the technology are required to articulate it either as an infrastructure project or as a part of a PI-led research project and evaluate prospective funders accordingly. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp as we highlight the best funding sources for virtualization projects and discuss what they each will require in order to support them. We will also review best practices for integrating a technology like virtualization into a proposal so that it supports the objectives of the project and strengthens the case for support.
