Greenbelt, Md.-based Presidio Networked Solutions, Inc., a provider of professional and managed services for IT infrastructure solutions, launched its Presidio Grants Office program, developed to help organizations identify and secure grant funding for IT projects.

According to the company, the program helps organizations identify IT funding opportunities from more than $400 billion of grant monies available in the U.S. each year.

In partnership with Cisco (San Jose, Calif.), Presidio has retained the Grants Office, a third party company, to help healthcare, education, state, and local government customers navigate the process of identifying and securing grants, for the appropriate technology solutions. The Presidio Grants Office program can be particularly advantageous to state, local, education (SLED), or healthcare entities seeking funding for critical IT programs, it says.
