    Freedom of Information Isn't Free: Finding Funding for Public Records Management Software

    This is an external webinar hosted by GFOA. For technical assistance please contact the event coordinators.

    The American Rescue Plan’s $350 billion in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds offers a huge opportunity for states and local governments to invest in public service delivery, to increase government transparency, and to make governments operate more efficiently. One way these flexible stimulus funds can be used is to improve how governments process and respond to public records requests.

    Join Grants Office and special guests from GovQA and the National Association of Counties (NACo) to help you leverage ARPA Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to purchase public records management software for your organization. In this webcast, we will cover the broad basics of these funds, their eligible expenses, and discuss some of the sample use cases aligned with the Treasury Department guidelines. Additionally, we will cover the best practices for putting together your stimulus proposal to support your public records project.
