Hi, it’s Joe Morris! October is Cybersecurity month, so naturally, I want to dive into the newly released Notice of Funding Opportunity (FY 2022) for the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP).

I’ll also share my top reads of the month and a GovTech event (free and virtual) that should be on your radar.

Let’s dive in.

Digging Deeper into Cybersecurity Funding

You may have seen that the Notice of Funding Opportunity (FY 2022) for the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) was released on Friday, Sept. 16th.

We broke down the 100+ pages into a two-pager that provides all you need to know about the program and what you may have missed.

Download it here.

When looking at how your company can approach the next steps to navigating the grant program, Industry Navigator is a great resource to track the opportunity as well as get access to key government contacts making cybersecurity decisions.
