    Default Grant help

    I am new to the grant service and was wanting some help with grants that would give me the best chance of getting funding large or small any grant would help. We need a tanker, radios and other fire equipment.

    What are some good places to find grants?

    What grants should I try for?

    Wait...What state are you in? I live near a Richland Township.

    Anyways, Assistance to Firefighters Grant is the huge federal source of many.

    If you are in PA, there is the state grant for $10,000 a year.

    Do a complete risk assessment first. What is it that you need the most. Communications is very important; as well as equipment needed to perform the appropriate tasks at the scene. Firefighter Safety is a huge issue. Think of your firefighters safety and ability to perform their duties effectively and the ability for interoperatability.
