Genesis Launches Free Grant Assistance Program

Tyler, TX, May 1, 2020: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for alternative means of funding for Public Safety agencies. The Genesis Group today announced the launch of their Grant Assistance Program, offering free grant services for those agencies. Genesis has partnered with Lexipol, a leading provider of policy and training solutions for fire and rescue, corrections, and law enforcement to deliver these services. The Genesis Grant Assistance Program provides support to find and apply for grants with the help of expert coaching throughout the entire process.

Looking Up Down Under – Genesis in Australia

Our partnership with Kalibre in Melbourne is a vital part of our commitment to increasing the global value of the Genesis brand. Our presence at APCO Australasia and interaction with public safety communications professionals helped cultivate new relationships and strengthen existing ones in the Australia, Asia and Pacific region.

From Genesis President Jim Nipp:

“Today we flew to Adelaide to meet with the team from SAGRN (South Australian Government Radio Network). What this Motorola managed team has been able to do with Genesis and Kalibre as partners has become the model for other managed service offerings, worldwide. This visit was in response to their willingness to pull back the curtain and show off some of the magic. Likely my single proudest day to be wearing a Genesis logo on my shirt.”
