Advice for Grant?
I searched this topic and found nothing that helped me. What are the odds for a burn trailer/tower/building for an AFG grant? Houses are becoming hard to find and there is no place close for live burn training. Let me know what you think.

If I understand correctly, there may be a chance for a mobile burn trailer, but the AFG wil not fund construction projects. (Stimulus firehouses maybe)Glenn Rainey

A tower or a building is prohibited by AFG rules. Per the PG (Training):
Ineligible activities in this area include:
•construction of facilities, such as classrooms, buildings, towers etc.;
•firefighting equipment or PPE for use in training exercises, such as SCBA;
•modular training units that are not trailer-mounted or are otherwise immobile;
•site preparation to accommodate any training activity, facility, or prop;
•purchase or lease of real estate; and
•remodeling that is not directly related to other grant activities.
