The CARES Act provides an additional $400 million to the regular annual Help America Vote Act funding to facilitate and secure this year’s election cycle, and the funding has already begun to make its way to local election officials.
State-by-state distribution procedures vary, and the funds can be used for a wide range of election initiatives that include printing and mailing ballots, securing election systems, and disinfecting election facilities, to name just a few examples.
Telework gets a lot of attention in the CARES Act, for obvious reasons, and Congress has appropriated billions of dollars through more than a dozen programs that can fund telework for employees of state and local governments, hospitals, schools, and institutions of higher education.Everyone is deploying some form of telework in their agencies, and knowing which programs can fund telework and how to access the funding can make the difference between covering the excess cost of this technology and straining already tight budgets to accommodate this new reality.Join Grants Office and special guests from Carahsoft and Palo Alto Networks for a look at how the CARES Act provides for telework operations, approaches for getting telework funded through these programs, and the latest technology that can make your telework initiative more robust and secure.

Congress has passed three bills in the past month, appropriating 2.4 trillion dollars to help states and local communities respond to the coronavirus pandemic and alleviate the severe economic distress that has come with it. Among the unemployment insurance benefits and checks to individuals are billions of dollars in grants for healthcare, education, and public safety. And most of these funds are intended to be distributed quickly.Join the Grants Office team for an (admittedly wonky) analysis of the grant funding included in all three bills. We'll cover the parameters and amounts of new funding that will be available and discuss how these funds will be distributed across the public sector landscape.As with the stimulus grants of 2008, preparation now can make the difference in getting the funding you need to meet your community's critical needs!
Rapidly advancing artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML) tools are enabling end-users to make data-informed decisions in real time. One sector that is poised to transform data into actionable insights is academia. AI & ML opens the door for education entities to extract insights from their data silos to drive student performance and realize major breakthroughs in their research portfolios. Whether it is identifying students at-risk of falling out for early intervention, empower content discovery for course design and assessment, or enabling innovative research, the power of AI and ML is only limited by the funding required to procure the technology. The good news is there are many funding opportunities available to acquire AI & ML technology to enable innovative education and groundbreaking research projects.Join Grants Office, special guests from Penn State, HP and NVIDIA as we explore exciting developments in how Institutions of Higher Education have leveraged AI & ML to enhance education outcomes and research discoveries, and highlight upcoming grant opportunities you may want to pursue.

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.

Knowledge of computing is an integral part of any modern STEM career. Unfortunately, lack of funding can put computing and computational thinking education on the backburner within K-12 schools. To make matters worse, research has found that when computational thinking and computer science IS taught in pre-K-12 classrooms, it is often done without consideration for age-appropriate teaching and learning methods. To address this gap within the pedagogy and to better prepare students to participate in the future STEM workforce, the National Science Foundation provides competitive grant awards though their STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) program.This opportunity supports applied research and development efforts related to building an evidence base for effective pedagogy and pedagogical environments that will make the integration of computing within STEM disciplines more age-appropriate and relevant to pre-K-12 STEM education. As such, it is an excellent opportunity for collaborative proposals between k-12 school districts and research faculty at institutions of higher education.Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft, Connection Public Sector Solutions, and Lenovo for a look at innovative computing education technologies, the requirements for application to this program, and general tips for preparing an NSF grant application.
