Genetec Inc., a provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, introduces the Genetec Grants Support Team (GGST) to assist public sector agencies in researching, selecting, and applying for grant funding for their technology projects.

Although grants often provide key funding for organizations to introduce solutions that help them better service their communities, public sector teams may not have the time and resources available to research and apply for available grant opportunities, says a press release from the company. The GGST supports these teams and serves 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.”

In 2023 alone, more than 5,000 federal, state, and foundation grant programs will be opened in the U.S., 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 company says GGST is partnering with Grants Office LLC, a national grants intelligence firm with 22 years of experience in helping public sector agencies find and secure grant funding. Together, Genetec says 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 GGST.
