On May 17, 2018 the grant awards were announced for the FY18 Community Compact IT Grant Program. It was open to municipalities that applied for a Community Compact under the CCC Best Practice program on or before January 1, 2018, except for those cities and towns that were awarded an IT Grant Program grant in FY17.
This is a competitive grant program focused on driving innovation and transformation at the local level via investments in technology. Using the transformative powers of IT, we can drive innovation, make government more efficient, save taxpayer money, and make it easier for residents to interact and transact with their local government.
Grants of up to $200,000 will support the implementation of innovative IT projects by funding related one-time capital needs such as technology infrastructure, upgrades and/or purchases of equipment or software. Incidental or one-time costs related to the capital purchase such as planning, design, installation, implementation and initial training are eligible.
