Dear Readers,

The coming of autumn often brings with it beautiful colors, the smell of burning leaves, a distinct chill in the air, and, in recent years, a drawn out battle to pass a federal budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

A delayed federal budget does not only have repercussions for public, government owned entities such as zoos and libraries, it also effects Federal Agencies responsible for grant making.  Thus, delays in releasing grant programs caused by an incomplete federal budget precipitates additional delays for grant seekers.

In his Between the Lines column, Chris LaPage explores a brief history of past budget delays and discusses what a potential stall of the FY2016 budget could mean to those seeking grant funding.  

This October issue of FUNDED also features a call to those grant seeking law enforcement agencies who did not find funding for Body Worn Cameras through the Department of Justice.  Dan Casion expounds numerous other outlets of funding available for those who would continue to seek it, further details of which can be found in the Program Snapshots featured on pages 10, 11, and 12.

Finally, Elizabeth Evans breaks down the importance of approach for those seeking grant funding for technology.  As she delineates, writing a proposal can be a lot like baking a cake -- and technology is merely one ingredient.
