The Challenge

The City of Apache Junction has a population of 35,840 and is named for the junction of the Apache Trail and U.S. Highway 60. This unique city had been using multiple sources to find grant funding opportunities but still struggled with time and resources. As a result, city administrators missed grant opportunities and spent excessive time researching and trying to find the right grants.



The Solution

Then, one brave grants coordinator, Heather Patel, led the charge in helping the City reduce research time and missed grants opportunities. The City used the expansive eCivis Grants Network database to help them find targeted grant opportunities faster. Because of our heroine, Heather, she and her colleagues were able to scan daily emails for grant summaries and eligibility to determine whether to pursue an opportunity–in much less time. 


The Results

Heather and the heroes of Apache Junction saved upwards of 15 hours per week researching grant opportunities.
