    When most Americans think of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, they probably don’t think of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society, nor do they probably think of how the HEA was established to strengthen the resources of public Institutions of Higher Education (IHE).  More likely, what comes to mind is the ability for students to receive financial assistance for post-secondary education.  But what about the funding that goes directly to institutions?     When Title III (“Institutional...

...it’s who.     At least that’s true in the world of public safety.  Most in the public safety realm are well aware of the annually administered, direct, federal grants, such as the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program and the Justice Assistance Grant Local Solicitation.  These grants are a “straight shot” from applicant to funder—that is, the applying entity submits an application directly to the funding agency—no middle person.     However, there are a myriad of programs from the Department...

    Healthcare is a business, yet it typically trails most business-related trends by several decades.  For instance, while most other businesses began the transformation to electronic record-keeping in the late 1980s and 1990s, the movement in healthcare has primarily happened over the past five years.  Considering that healthcare is a life-critical system as opposed to a mission-critical business, any change must be approached with caution.  However, occasionally government regulations and the political arena force rapid change and evolution in the business model.  Taking the example of electronic health records (EHRs), it was the combination of government incentives (to adopt) built into the 2009 American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) that finally provided the impetus for providers to make the jump to EHRs....

    Hey readers from Higher Education Institutions! Yes, you! November is here and do you know what that means? It’s almost time for your institution to submit its request for designation as an eligible Title III or Title V school.     You may recall that last year the Department of Education deviated from the norm, opting for a November 3rd, 2014 release and December 22nd, 2014 deadline rather than its usual springtime release.  Based on that shift, prudent grant administrators are probably...

Rarely are there grants expressly for the purpose of purchasing technology equipment. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is host to one of these exceptions, the Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) grant, wherein the USDA funds the acquisition of video conferencing equipment for rural end-users proposing either distance learning or telemedicine projects.



Opportunities such as DLT are few and far between and often come with strict eligibility requirements that knock...

It’s no secret that the National Science Foundation (NSF) concerns itself with awarding grant opportunities related to STEM endeavors. However, often times we only consider cutting-edge, high-level research, or sub-field specific grants. Yet, there also exists a plethora of fellowship opportunities that are available to individual researchers.

Agencies around the country initiate technology projects in different ways and for different reasons. For some, technology is a way of keeping current and of ensuring that stakeholders have access to the latest and greatest in services. For others, a governing body may mandate a greater focus on technology, in the broad, undefined way governing bodies sometimes have. Still others are won over by a compelling case for return on investment or quality improvement. Or a technology salesperson may have let you know that the current technology has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced.

Across the U.S., private foundations are experiencing an ever-increasing demand for grant funding.  Unfortunately, for many of these agencies, the supply of funding has diminished in recent years.

Crowd-sourcing is largely enabled through cloud-based computing, where information, documents, and other materials are not stored locally on an individual's own computer, but are instead stored on a remote server and made accessible from any internet device. Cloud computing has rapidly been transforming the private and public sectors alike, as it helps make the sharing of information and applications more efficient.
