AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GTYH) (“GTY”), a leading provider of SaaS/Cloud solutions for the public sector, announced today that its business unit, eCivis, a leader in grants management solutions, is working with Nueces County, Texas to support grants management and cost recovery through its combined offering of software solutions and professional services.
“eCivis is trusted by state, local and tribal governments because it drives impactful organizational change,” said Stephen Rohleder, President, CEO and Chairman of GTY. “It’s inspiring to see that eCivis is helping Nueces County to maximize their available funding for the many valuable programs they provide to enrich communities across the county.”
Grants provide critical funding to Nueces County for the programs and services it offers to over 363,000 citizens. Grants contribute to services such as disaster aid, afterschool programs, funding for college students, healthcare (including Medicaid), and projects ranging from affordable housing and infrastructure to transportation and coastal management. To maximize the impact of these grants, Nueces County required a grants management system to help streamline their grant process, stay compliant, and track outcomes more effectively.
eCivis will provide Nueces County with their full service offering, Fund Maximization, a combination of their grants management system (Grants Network) and cost allocation service (Allocate), as well as professional services to optimize their funding. The eCivis system offers Nueces County end-to-end grant lifecycle support and will improve their grants process to ensure federal funds are properly managed and that indirect costs are accurately calculated and reimbursed.
“After Hurricane Harvey devastatingly struck our community in 2017, Nueces County identified a major gap in calculating indirect costs,” said Judge Barbara Canales, “Nueces County is excited to be leading the charge in working with eCivis to not only develop a great cost allocation plan, but to recover funds that would otherwise have been unrecoverable. This is vital to our disaster recovery process. We appreciate eCivis and its staff for working with Nueces County and we are optimistic in this new venture.”
Fund Maximization will enable Nueces County to save time and fund programs and services more efficiently with better outcomes for the communities it serves. In addition, working with eCivis will help the County implement grant management best practices and identify new funding opportunities to pursue.
