Grants for driver speed display signs can be found among federal and law enforcement grants. But there are a variety of options in addition to grants that may be good resources for money to install the signs.
Some local funding options may include things like local budgets that might include funds for things like driver feedback signs to improve public safety. Look in places like parks and recreation, public school, local law enforcement and transportation operating budgets for help with funding radar signs. Another option is any capital improvement project that's paid for with public money. Where there's construction or changes to the infrastructure, there may be money available to budget toward the signs.
Other sources of funds including private sources for driver feedback signs can be a little easier to find, though the money for the project may not always be available. Any local chapter of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) may have money budgeted for school safety, or may have contacts with organizations that can help with speed display signs designed for school zones.
Look at your local Chamber of Commerce for businesses and organizations that are often charitable toward the community for possible funds. And contacting members of things like local chapters of the the Elks or Moose lodges, the Rotary Club, and other organizations could help you find individuals or local business owners who can help with funding.
Foundations regularly give money to good community causes, as well. Local chapters and related organizations are a good place to start, but searching nationwide for foundations that often help with things like public safety, health, community and transportation could produce several possibilities. Many organizations, foundations and local businesses may be more apt to produce funds for signs in school zones than in other areas, but these are still all good resources to check for signs destined for any part of the community.
Some local organizations or individuals may also have special incentives and gifts designed for programs that stress green living. These may be worth looking into for the acquisition of solar-powered speed display signs. Not only does the request for the signs help improve public safety, they promote environmental awareness by not using electricity and running clean and green. This type of request might have extra appeal for environmental and green organizations.
Don't forget corporations in your search for funding. Small businesses, foundations and individuals are all great ideas, but most big corporations that have stores and businesses across the nation have very organized charitable programs in place. Contact the corporations represented in your community and ask about the programs they have available.
