KTI-Media Introduces ‘GARPP,’ a New App Providing Free Grant Research and Writing Assistance for EMS, Fire, Police and Military, for EveryDayHeroes2013
ERIE, Colo., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Knowella Technologies Inc. and KTI-Media, organizers of the Everyday Heroes Funding and Products Expo 2013, being held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Sands Expo and Conference Center June 19-21, 2013, will soon be releasing a new App named “GARPP,” to be available on Android and iPhone with an estimated completion date of Jan. 31, 2013.
GARPP, which stands for “Grant Apps Requiring Proper Planning,” is the first application of its kind, in that it assists all public safety departments in the understanding of the proper progression of steps required to write a successful grant application, along with finding grants and researching them as well. This software will be utilized as not only a Trade Show App but can and will be utilized all year long by both attendees and exhibitors. It’s a way to provide both entities an increase in revenues and reduce expenditures equally, before, during and after the Everyday Heroes Funding and Products Expo 2013.
“GARPP’s” main objective is to make sure that departments utilize their entire year, by properly prioritizing and planning what each one (department) is looking to accomplish when applying for their individual grant and how they can supplement their department’s income for the purchase of much needed equipment, services or even for use in the hiring of additional departmental personnel.
“GARPP” addresses the biggest area of concern that most departments lack and that is the proper planning when it comes to writing a grant. “Departments need to understand and begin the grant writing process exactly one day after the last grant application deadline has passed, because this is a year-long process,” according to Todd Wessels, Vice President of KTI-Media. “The biggest mistake we see most departments make is that they try to cram a year-long process into one or two weeks. Because of that, they lack not only the proper understanding, but they lack the most important piece, which is documentation to back up their application for that specific grant. By utilizing the milestone features within our app, it paces and prepares these departments/agencies, by receiving push messages for the grants they have selected to apply for within the app. Plus these milestones will assist in keeping everything and everyone on schedule.”
One of the largest roadblocks departments face during their grant writing process is not only which vendor/s to choose from, but also once chosen, getting the vendor/s to provide enough detailed information needed on the products they’ve selected for their grant for that year in a timely fashion. Departments may also be seeking a new technology or service for their department they know very little about in order to provide better overall efficiency and reduce costs; therefore, included in the grants assistance and the tradeshow app will be a place for them to connect with and chat or email questions to more than 500+ vendors / exhibitors for products and services that will be attending the Everyday Heroes 2013 Expo and be able to explore a vast range of companies to choose from. There is more than $3.8 billion dollars available each year for grant funds at Local, State and Federal levels.
