ALBANY, N.Y. — Zonar and the National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT) are again sponsoring the Don Carnahan Memorial Grant, which is now open for applications.

This is the 11th year of the Don Carnahan Memorial Grant, which gives school districts the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 in smart fleet technology, the association said in a newsletter on Tuesday. Since 2010, Zonar has donated more than $500,000 in technology to school transportation providers across the U.S. and Canada through the grant program.

"Thanks to this grant and our partnership with Zonar, NAPT members have unique access to innovative technology that can help them improve operations," said Steve Simmons, president of NAPT.

Grant recipients can apply for Zonar fleet management technology, including Electronic Verified Inspection Reporting (EVIR); high-definition GPS fleet tracking with live delivery of vehicle performance, subsystem, and diagnostic information in one device (V4); real-time student tracking (Z Pass); Ground Traffic Control web-based software; and real-time driver coaching (Zonar Coach).

"The Don Memorial Carnahan Grant is special to Zonar — it was named in honor of our former VP of Pupil Transportation, who was a two-time NAPT president and a member of the NAPT Hall of Fame," said H. Kevin Mest, senior vice president of passenger services at Zonar. "We are pleased to announce this grant once again, in partnership with NAPT, to help enhance school bus operations with our technology — ultimately ensuring a more safe and efficient transportation experience for school officials, students, and parents."

To be considered for the grant award, applicants must be current NAPT members at the time of submission. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year and will be considered for full and partial grants worth up to $50,000 in hardware costs.
