Arizona Launches New Public Assistance Express Pay Program through Cloud-Based Grants System

GTY Technology Holdings Inc.

GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:GTYH) (“GTY”), a leading provider of SaaS/Cloud solutions for the public sector, announced today that its Saas/cloud based grants management solution, eCivis has supported the launch of the State of Arizona’s new Public Assistance Express Pay Program. This program, managed by the state’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA), accelerates the delivery of COVID-19 related funding and public assistance to local governments, tribal communities, schools, nonprofit organizations, and houses of worship for FEMA-eligible projects related to COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.

Previously, along with many other states, some Arizona agencies had been operating with manual paper processes, which complicates grants management and can lead to a significant slowdown in getting funds out. DEMA is now automating the tracking and distribution of grants in eCivis’ centralized cloud system, Grants Network. The system will serve as a one-stop-shop for pass-through entities and sub-recipients of funding. The hope of the program is to expedite the timeline of reviewing, disbursing, and reimbursing grants from months to possibly as little as 5 business days.

Ultimately, by centralizing disbursement and tracking of funding through eCivis’ electronic grants-based system, Arizona can better ensure a single source of truth for tracking; data visualization and transparency to the public; and overall better grant programs and performance in these especially challenging times for Arizonans and the nation.
