Bridge the Gap Between Resources and Necessities
Grants are a great way for your agency to receive funding beyond the limits of your operating budget. In a post-pandemic environment, grants can assist your agency in bridging the gap between resources and necessities; they are a solution to evolving community challenges, especially when you are working with lean finances. Grants can provide financial assistance with infrastructure, transportation, technology, police and fire to arts, parks, and public welfare initiatives, etc..
Outside of revenue from property and sales taxes, federal and state grants can be a primary driver of income for many local communities and can be used to fuel neighborhood improvements. Obtaining grant funding can be extremely competitive. The number of requests for funding is continually greater than the funds available. This means that even strong applications may not be approved for funding.
