Used eCivis' grant management software to help departments and community-based organizations quickly find relevant funding opportunities.
Reduced redundancies in time and effort.
Increased grant awards by 204 percent.
Doubled the number of grant awards and helped community-based organizations be more successful in helping provide a higher quality of life for residents.
Norfolk's various departments had difficulty finding the right grants and occasionally found themselves accidentally competing for the same funding. This resulted in:
Redundancies in time and effort.
Challenges trying to educate more community-based organizations (CBOs) about other funding opportunities.
The heroes of the City of Norfolk banded together to create an Office of Grants Management, which used eCivis' Grants Network to help other departments find grant funding. Through Grants Network, our brave heroes could provide training and resources to nonprofits and help them find their own grants. The Office was also able to leverage comprehensive search results and research training sessions, eliminating difficulties in finding grants.
With the help of eCivis, our heroes in the Office of Grants were able to double the number of grant awards, minimize time spent searching for grants, and help community-based organizations be more successful in pursuing funding opportunities. Ultimately, the City saw a 204% increase in grant awards, leading to a higher quality of life for Norfolk residents.
