The recent CARES Act grant funding has been made available for schools across the country in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Act includes 3 separate grants; one for elementary and secondary schools(ESSER), one for colleges (HEER) and another for the most significantly impacted educational agencies in the state (GEER).
This funding includes $396.3M in ESSER funds and $95.6M in GEER funds for the state of NC alone!
Motorola has provided an outline that we can send to you (CARES ACT Information Action) detailing how you can apply for each. The deadline to apply for this funding is July 1, 2020. We wanted you to know that we at Two Way Radio of Carolina, are here to make sure all of our schools in the Carolinas are aware and participate in the granting funding process. We believe that school safety technology is an allowable use of much of this funding as it will play a critical role in easing the transition when school activities resume and ensuring that required health and safety protocols are followed.
