Database Lists $11.5 Billion in School Grants

CARMEL, Ind. — Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies has augmented its grant-funding services to school superintendents, principals, facility managers, maintenance and locksmith personnel, and grant writers by creating a 24/7 cloud-based database of federal and state grant funding information.

Not only does this database provide access to all public and private grants for public and private schools, it details who in the school must write the grant and relays the type of equipment that the grant will help purchase. School districts can contact Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies for information including daily, updated background on funds, funding news with expert insights and resources that schools can call on to learn how to best write the grant.

“We now provide a complete portfolio of services to help schools identify what grants are available to them and the specifics for obtaining that grant,” stresses April Dalton-Noblitt, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, director-vertical marketing. “It is part of our commitment to the nation’s schools that when it comes to safety and security, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies will continue to be their best partner in helping locate the money they need.”

According to Noblitt, safety and security, especially concerns about lockdowns, visitor management and compliance, continue to be a top priority for school systems. Nonetheless, the reality is that funding for security must often compete with traditional financing that pays for books, buildings and teachers.

Fortunately, over $11.5 billion in federal, state, private foundation and corporate grants are available —but can be hard to discover. Over the years, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies has developed expertise in the grant funding process, helping schools locate grants. This process will now be even more complete and up-to-date by the company keeping its own, updated database of grants.

This database augments other Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies funding tools for schools, which includes, on their website, grant toolkits, a grant sheet with timelines to assure that money is available for the system the school wants to buy and that the school is targeting the appropriate grant-giving groups for the types of security products they need. Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies even provides a grant consultant.
