Genetec introduces Grants Support Team to Help Public Sector Agencies Navigate the Grant Funding Process
Genetec offers complimentary services to support public sector teams seeking additional resources to research and apply for grant opportunities
Genetec Inc., a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, introduces the Genetec Grants Support Team (GGST) to assist US public sector agencies research, select and apply for grant funding for their technology projects. Grants often provide key funding for organizations to introduce solutions that help them better serve their communities.
However, public sector teams may not have the time and resources available to research and apply for available grant opportunities. The GGST can now support them, serving as an extension of their internal team throughout the grant process.
“Grant funding can provide significant resources for public sector organizations implementing new technology solutions,” said Rick Taylor, national director for Public Sector at Genetec Inc. “However, with so many grants available, it may be challenging for agencies to navigate the grant research and application process. The GGST will partner with an agency’s team from start to finish as they seek to secure grant funding. This could entail consultation, funding research, or complete grant writing assistance.”
This year alone, more than 5,000 federal, state, and foundation grant programs will be opened in the US, providing more than $990 billion in awards. Top candidates for grant awards include K-12 and higher education, law enforcement, public safety, county and municipal agencies, transportation and utilities.
To help these agencies in the research and application for grant awards, the GGST is partnering with Grants Office, a national grants intelligence firm with a 22-year track record of helping public sector agencies find and secure grant funding. Together, they will offer a range of complimentary services including grant funder prospecting; project consultation; and grant application writing, editing and review.
“In addition to individual consultation, we’ll provide quarterly updates on available grants as well as educational materials. We look forward to being a resource for public sector teams as they navigate the grant funding process, find suitable grants that fit their objectives, and bring their goals to reality,” said Jeanne Smith, Program Manager for the Genetec Grants Support Team.
