CityGrows is the most efficient way to use CARES Act funding for digital services

The deadline for governments to spend CARES Act funds is approaching. CityGrows offers the fastest, most efficient way to support remote work and provide digital permitting, licensing, and internal workflow tools. Traditionally, this type of software has been expensive and time-consuming to procure and implement. CityGrows offers flat-fee, inexpensive software for municipalities and counties that you can begin using immediately. Governments stand up new permitting and licensing workflows in a few days or weeks. One CityGrows subscription covers your entire enterprise (any/ all departments and staff) and any/ all permits, licenses, and processes.

Governments across the U.S. spent time and money to create the basic capacity for their employees to work remotely during March and April 2020 purchasing laptops and developing telework processes in real time. Now many governments are realizing they need better digital tools to allow their teams to function efficiently, whether they're working from home or (safely) in the office. It's really hard for teams to effectively process emailed applications or scanned PDFs when people are not all in the same place. There's no time for a full RFP process between now and the end of the year - but purchasing a CityGrows subscription for your municipality, county, or special district doesn't require one.

Learn how you can improve your digital services capability and efficiently spend your CARES Act funding before December 30th.

Even before COVID, CityGrows has always priced our software to be easy to purchase. We know governments can't always effectively anticipate their future needs - which departments will need to add new workflows and processes.

One of the acceptable ways to spend CARES Act funds is "Expenses to improve telework capabilities for public employees to enable compliance with COVID-19 public health precautions." (Here's a link to the guidance around spending and the CARES Act from the U.S. Treasury Department). CityGrows is the flexible, low-cost way to prepare your entire organization for the rest of 2020, 2021 and beyond. With a CityGrows subscription you can transition new and existing workflows online in real time. Save time, conserve resources, generate new revenue, and keep your staff safe. Make the most out of your CARES Act funding and invest in the resilience and security of your organziation with CityGrows.
