Funding GIS Projects (EPAN09)

  1. 1. Funding GIS Projects<br />September 18, 2009<br />
  2. 2. There Are No Guarantees!<br />Funding streams can die at anytime<br />People make decisions and perceptions differ<br />Politics can be very good and very bad<br />
  3. 3. My Funding Background<br />Based off of six years working with the Southern Alleghenies Regional Planning and Development Commission<br />Worked with every level of government, state agency, and various non-profit organizations<br />Assisted in procuring funding from $800 to $1,300,000<br />I can connect GIS to any scenario<br />
  4. 4. First Step: What Do You Want To Do?<br />Define a clear project<br />Write it out<br />Gather support from others<br />Know what good will come from this project, anything that is good for the community or will directly lead to cost savings is key<br />When do I want this project done?<br />
  5. 5. Second Step: Research<br />Is the project really feasible?<br />How much will this cost?<br />Get real cost estimates from a consultant, they’re free and carry more weight with funding organizations<br />Who would fund this type of project?<br />Talk with others who have done similar projects<br />Talk with your local County and Regional Governments<br />When would I be able to get funding?<br />You will not get money overnight<br />
  6. 6. Step Three: Communication<br />Find out who the decision makers are for your funding submittal<br />Call and talk with them about your project before submitting<br />They can be helpful with your submittal<br />
  7. 7. Step Four: Writing Your Submittal<br />Language is key, write what the funding organization wants to hear<br />Use key trigger words (economic development, community, technology)<br />Get to the point, you’re not the only submittal they are reviewing<br />Try to be unique, have something standout<br />
  8. 8. Step Five: You’re Submitted, Now What<br />Stay in touch with the funding group<br />You may be on the decision line<br />Start development of plan B, C, D, E, etc.<br />
  9. 9. Step Six: You Get Funded<br />Mission accomplished, almost<br />Promote your project, there is no charge for local media<br />In publications about your project don’t forget to mention who gave you the cash<br />You may need them again and funding organizations like relationships<br />Make your project a success<br />
