City of Belle Glade, FL

Last year I was introduced to the eCivis system during a grant training course; as a project manager and grant writer I immediately noted the numerous capabilities that would support and expedite my work. To date I have procured millions of dollars for projects ranging from marina, navigation and campgrounds to roads, drainage, facilities and playground equipment. Prior to eCivis I used grants.gov or physically went in and performed searches by agencies, foundations or needs, and the searches needed to be done one at a time. Today, I receive a weekly update of all new funding according to my search preferences and have access to the descriptions allowing me to review possibilities in seconds. Recently, I went into grants.gov, after accessing grant info through eCivis, and found a new upgrade that was extremely difficult to utilize. Following up with grants is the only way that municipal governments can get funding for projects, this is a critical stream of revenue and tools providing ease of access with strong follow-up are a must, in order to be successful.

Borough of Brentwood, PA

Trying to research and locate funding opportunities is becoming more and more of a competitive process. There are more organizations seeking funding from a limited pool of available grants and foundations. eCivis provides a means of not only researching for the most appropriate funding source, but also provides assistance with the application process, and the tracking of said grants. This has saved the Borough of Brentwood countless hours of staff time and resources. The web-based program is so user friendly that only a minimal amount of training time was needed before we were able to jump right in and begin using Grants Network. The very first time using the system, the Borough's Acting Police Chief not only found a grant opportunity for purchasing AEDs, but applied and was awarded the grant. In a time when everyone is asked to do more with less, eCivis has proven to be a valuable and reliable resource.

County of Alachua, FL

Emailed tips and articles are VERY helpful; they serve as periodic reminders about different aspects of the various components of grant-seeking and grant management. And with so many grant opportunities available today, the eCivis-provided summaries save a tremendous amount of time relative to determining which grant programs to investigate more thoroughly.

Special District of Darrington Fire Department 24

We started using eCivis in January of 2015. I am pleased with the help, the information that [they] provide, and the staff they employ to help us. Just yesterday I received notice that we were awarded the Medic One Foundation grant. We also have been awarded a CDGB grant, and a Cascade Valley Hospital grant. All these grants have added up to just under one million dollars in grant money [for] our Fire District.

I love the Go-No Go Checklist for Applying for Grants, as it has been helpful for me to share with senior management. I would like to see more resources like this that can help me share grant-related principles and practices with our senior execs.

Osage Nation, OK

The Osage Nation purchased the eCivis grants software about three years ago. Before eCivis, we maintained our grants using excel spreadsheets and grant documentation was kept with the program and the accounting department. Since having eCivis the Osage Nation has been able to have a centralized data base of all of our grants which is transparent to the Osage Nation Executive Office. It allows the administration to keep up with compliance and program measures. eCivis is on track to have a great software with continued enhancements tailored to the needs of Indian Country.

Puget Creek Restoration Society, Tacoma, WA

We are a small environmental non-profit and so we rely heavily on grants to fund our programs and keep the organization running. eCivis has become the primary resource that we use to find grants to apply for. We have a wide range of technological ability at our organization, and yet everyone is able to navigate and utilize the eCivis network without much problem. This will continue to be our primary grant management resource as long as they continue with the excellent service we have come to expect with their program.

Mecklenburg County, NC

Useful. I don't write federal grants, but since they are separated out, it is easy to look at what I need. [eCivis] gives good information and has links to websites and NOFA info that is very helpful.

Polk County, FL

eCivis has taken a very long, tedious, and time-consuming process and has increased my job efficiency by 100%. Grants Network has great reporting tools [that] are instrumental in tracking and management. eCivis also has tasks and reminders that assist with time management so we don't miss deadlines. I highly recommend eCivis.

Lee County Sheriff's Office, FL

eCivis is a valuable tool for the Lee County Sheriff's Office. I use it regularly to search for supplemental funding for a wide range of projects. I also review the email blast of new grants available on a daily basis.
Perhaps the most valuable feature is the function that updates users on any changes to saved grant announcements. We apply for multiple recurring grants that never seem to have the same release date. This feature alerts our agency whenever there is a change for saved grants. It's a time saver and a safety net to help ensure that we don't miss an important grant that we depend upon for continued operations.

City of Goodyear, AZ

[Without eCivis] Goodyear would probably be out of the grants business, or at least the federal grants business, as missed reports, reimbursements, and so on would have prevented the city from ever being funded again by certain federal agencies.

All projects in Pasadena's Arroyo Seco (a 1,000-acre recreational and natural area park and urban forestry street), as well as park tree planting projects and city park renovation projects, are solely funded by grants. eCivis is our primary source when initially obtaining grant information!
