Grants and Cooperative Agreements

Current & upcoming funding opportunities

Funding opportunities are a staple of public-private partnerships. PSCR has been proud to work with over 200 public safety agencies, academic researchers, and industry partners in both technological and social areas, to support our mission and accelerate the advancement of public safety communications technologies. 

While there are currently no open or upcoming funding opportunities available from PSCR, we encourage you to sign up to our mailing list and select “Grants and Cooperative Agreements,” as an area of interest to ensure you are the first to know if any additional funding becomes available.
