About this grant

Information and communication technologies can help nonprofit organizations strengthen their capacity and improve program effectiveness. NetCorps, a national nonprofit technology assistance organization, will use this grant to help 30 organizations that are focused on freshwater ecosystem conservation in the Great Lakes and Southeast assess their technology needs and develop and implement strategic technology plans to fill those needs. NetCorps will also provide ongoing support to similar groups that have already undergone technology assessments and are well along in the implementation phase.
