Tapping Into Federal Funds: Your Ultimate Grant Resource

Public safety communications centers hoping to improve infrastructure, upgrade equipment or add staff need access to funding outside the usual budget sources. Grants are often the answer to this need.Tapping into Federal Fundsis your ultimate grant resource. It offers an introduction to grants and who offers them, and describes the paths that three different agencies took to find funding for major projects. Finally, the supplement offers grant-writing tips from a grant reviewer.



Where's the Money?
