BGCCCI has been historically built on grant funding that has helped it to sustain since 2012.
Affiliated faculty at BGCCCI have received several grants over the years. The grants have enabled the center to initiate/continue research on innovative student and faculty centered projects. The projects supported or sustained by the grants have provided opportunities for faculties and students to acquire new hands-on skills in geospatial technology conduct cutting–edge research in STEAM disciplines. Without the funding the center would not have grown to its current stature of a major intellectual hub in the region. Some of the grant awards e.g. Natural Resources and Imagery Grants (ESRI) have placed BGCCCI and the City University of New York on the global map.
