Technology grants are not just to help pay for computers. They are the most common way of funding equipment for a classroom, non profit organization and schools. Competition for the grants are high and require a well prepared grant proposal.

Technology grants can pay for software to improve a learning experience. They can pay for new cameras for community center. The grants can help pay for new medical equipment at a health center. The funds can also be applied for to help pay for technology material that will help a individual or child with a disability lead a more independent life.

  • Classroom Grants:
    Teachers, Educators, PTA Groups and schools can apply to get help with cost of interactive learning for technology such as computer grants, iPad grants and software grants. The money is to go for a specific project to help teachers teach and students learn. There are special grants to help teachers teach reading, for special education class, to teach music and to teach math.
  • Community Grants:
    Community programs and agencies can apply for grant money to pay for training and technology. Libraries and Career center commonly apply for technology based Community Action Grants to help pay for computer programs, computer equipment, software and other new technology to help job seekers, elderly and other community members.
  • Healthcare Grants:
    Doctors offices, health centers, nursing homes or school nurses can apply for grants to help pay for such things as software to improve care, training to learn a life saving device or new high tech medical equipment to help patients.
  • Economic Grants:
    Businesses, local governments and non profit agencies can apply for grants to pay for technology to help improve the economy. Economic grants are not just to increase jobs but to improve the community in whole.
  • Personal Grants:
    Individuals may apply for grants to pay for things such as computers, tech training and other technology expenses. Personal grants are highly competitive and not everyone will apply.
  • Research Grants:
    Individuals, students, teachers, businesses and organizations can apply for grants to research new technology that may improve society. Grants applications for this type of research needs to show some ground work and be able to show why the research is important.
  • Green Grants:
    Farmers, factories, individuals, schools and other groups interested in pressuring technology to improve the environment and/or decrease waste can apply for green technology grants.
  • Assistive Technology Grants:
    Individuals with disabilities or parents of kids with disabilities may apply for technology grants to help pay for costs of technology they may improve their life. For example a parent with a autistic child may apply for a Assistive Technology grant to help pay for a tacking device for their child. A individual that is hear impaired may apply for a software program that will allow them to do their job better at work.
Non profits focused on improving education, technology based companies and government agencies give grants to deserving applicants. I found the book below to be a great refferance to help find the right sources in the IT field. You can also use websites such as A grant proposal for a technology grant must be crafted and written in a detailed manner. Because IT grants are so competitive it is important to do all the research possible to be competitive with other applicants. A grant proposal can not just say that they need the grants because they want new computer equipment. They must state what is needed, why it is needed, how much the cost will be, the timeline and information to back each statement up. To learn more about writing a grant proposal go here. The federal government, state, county and city governments, as well as private and corporate foundations all award technology grants.
