    Question Need Help!

    I'm from a rural fire department in Missouri. My question is does anyone know of all the possible grants that are available to small departments in Missouri? We are very active with the AFG grants with a few successful awards. I've heard of SEMA grants but that's about it. I'm sure there must be more out there for us but I have no idea on how to find out what kind of grants there are available for us. Thank you so much for helping!

    Coming up, I think 1st would be the Conservation Department matching funds grant. See your local forester.

    Then AFG.

    SEMA sometimes has money, however there is no set dates.
    See your local State Farm Rep, they have funds avalible some times.

    Then there is always USDA, lots of hoops and depending on population and income base, a larger match.

    Drew, part of being a good grant writer is learning how to propelry research and find funding opportunities. That is something that is taught in our seminars. Come over to Kansas City onn Feb 25-26, 2009 when we are there and come learn how to do this from A-Z!
