Therefore, BTS, Inc. is pleased to be able to offer a limited number of BTS Grants to qualified school districts.

A BTS Grant recipient becomes well qualified to speak of their experience with the BTS team of experts and assist the District in planning efforts. A BTS Board Member or their designee will meet with each applicant to ascertain the specific areas of assistance needed. This process helps both the BTS Board and the potential applicant determine project suitability.
