Grants Available to Local Government to Help Grow Drone Programs

After completion of the DARTdrones Public Safety Grant funding towards drone training for police and fire departments, DARTdrones has decided to open a new grant for local governments. The goal is to help cities and towns grow their drone programs for the betterment of their communities. Adding drones to local government operations can be complex which is why DARTdrones is offering resources and training to help users successfully implement the technology.

The DARTdrones Local Government Grant provides full or partial funding to departments for courses such as Part 107 Test Prep Training, Basic Flight Training, Real World Flight Planning & Execution Program and private, on-site public safety drone training.

The DARTdrones team has awarded over $500,000 in drone training grant funds to 250+ police and fire departments in Round One, Two, and Three of the Public Safety Grant program. With the new Local Government Grant, the team will continue helping cities and towns across the country get the appropriate training to save more lives with drones. DARTdrones is working with other drone software and services companies to expand the reach and offerings of this grant.

Applicants must be associated with local government as grants will not be offered to individuals.
