After the grant period

After the two-year grant period, participants have the option to purchase a special low-cost software deal, ensuring that their software use is not interrupted. This access features the same software as the grant but can be purchased by multiple departments within a ministry or agency, allowing them to expand their use of geospatial tools. More information about this option will be shared with grant recipients towards the end of their two-year grant period.
