GRANT FUNDS INFORMATION & REFERRAL ASSISTANCE
FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
GET THE GRANT. SEE THE GREEN.
Night Vision technology is a vital crime-fighting tool, a true force multiplier for law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, budget priorities and limitations prevent many departments from purchasing this essential safety equipment.
Guidelines and links for finding and apllying for grants are listed here.
To get you started on the path of securing funds to purchase night vision gear and training please download Morovision's 2013 Grant Guide here.
We recommend that whoever will be the primary person researching grants and completing the paperwork (submission) for your agency that this person must have a knack for gathering data and be very detailed oriented to follow instructions exactly as requested by funds provider. The faster you move on this the faster you may be able to secure funds. It may take a few months to a few years to receive funds but the key is to plant the seeds now. There is a saying that one year from now you will be here in one year so you might as well take action now in order to benefit from the result in one year, versus doing nothing now and getting nothing in one year.
Since many of Morovision's products are on the InterAgency Board for Equipment Standardization and Interoperability (IAB) list, grant money from the Department of Homeland Security and other sources can be used to purchase this technology.
Morovision's grant referral assistance program will lead you to the funding sources and help you complete applications and related paperwork.
