A Technology Grants Guide for Local Government

Beginning with early gifts of land for settlement and expansion, federal grants have shaped the framework of our nation; fostering economic and social development; providing assistance in times of natural disaster; and underwriting education, health and public safety. Today, more than two dozen federal agencies offer over 1,000 grant programs. 

In 2013, the watchword in funding circles was “sequestration.” Cuts that went into place March 1 reduced 2013 funding for state grants by $5.1 billion — a financial blow, considering that grants typically make up one-third of most state revenues. But it’s not all bad news: The continuing resolution — also enacted in March — resulted in some states receiving grant funding that was actually greater than that awarded in 2012. 

There is still a significant amount of subsidies on the table — much of it earmarked for technology development, innovation and research. In fact, the Center for Digital Government (CDG) estimates $93.1 billion will be spent on IT-related purchases for state and local government this year, and there’s no reason why your agency shouldn’t be a serious contender. 

Despite the nation’s budgetary challenges, the government remains committed, both in principle and in practice, to promoting inquiry and advancement through grant allocation. Many grants are intended for use by local governments, most of which have been greatly impacted by the country’s economic struggles. 

This guide, sponsored by CDW•G, provides a list of grants available to local government entities, along with additional information and details on how prospective applicants can obtain more detail and maximize their chances of being awarded a particular grant. Many of the grants emphasize research and investment into new information technologies and other technological innovations.
