GIGa Awards

(Government Innovation Grant Awards)
Program Description

The Local Government Federal Credit Union’s Government Innovation Grant Awards (GIGa) program will provide competitive funding to local government entities based on innovation within the organization. The goal of the program is to spur and reward technology-based innovation across governments in North Carolina by offering incentives to those governments engaged in innovative, repeatable endeavors which help improve citizen services by increasing efficiencies, effectiveness, and possibly creating cost savings. More importantly, the grant program will elevate the importance of technology in the public sector and result in increased managerial and elected official interest in governmental technology investments. An outcome of the GIGa program will be an annual “State of the State of Technology” compendium, featuring all governmental submissions and offering promising practices for local governments to model and implement.
