Interested in a new cost-effective grant tracking and reporting system? CPCA has partnered with CiviCore, a technology solutions provider dedicated to improving the use of information in nonprofits, foundations, and public agencies, and a small workgroup of CPCA members to develop GrantTracker+, a grants management tool designed by and for community health centers.

GrantTracker+ is cloud-based, has no standard implementation fee, and costs only $150 per month for CPCA members ($200 per month for non-members) regardless of the number of users or amount of data in the system!
