Esri has announced a new global grants program for non-profit groups called the “ESRI nonprofit program”. You can find out more information by going to http://www.esri.com/nonprofit/. This new program is designed to be a streamlined way for Non-profits to obtain a cheap 1-year license of Esri’s ArcInfo Desktop GIS software.
All of their existing grant programs, like ECP and Techsoup, continue in full force. As I understand it participating in grants from one program doesn’t exclude you from eligibility for other programs. Esri has created a new site (www.esri.com/grants) which summarizes all of their grant programs.
