  If you are seeking Government Grants, the "Federal Grants" Index is a comprehensive list of government monies available to help support technology development, programs, curriculum and infrastructure. Funds available here promote the breaking of new ground in the use of technology by society, as well as support establishment uses in education, public welfare and community development. Federal monies are available to prepare teachers and universities as technology becomes an integral part of education, as well as to fund public access and community and workforce development.

Keep pace with technological advances, and overcome the financial shortfall from budgetary restrictions, by taking advantage of the ongoing grant opportunities from U.S. government federal agencies, as featured in recent issues of Technology Grant News. The "Federal Grants" Index is an invaluable resource for MIS department chairs, technology coordinators, librarians, school superintendants, school district supervisors and development / grant officers.
