    Default SAFER Grant Retention

    I'm wondering if anyone has been successful on recieving funding for college tuition through the SAFER grant process? If you have a successful narrative or even some ideas, I would be interested in talking to you.

    We got SAFER funding in 2009 that includes a tuition reimbursement section based on service to the volunteer department -- number of responses, hours logged on standby, time spent cleaning the station and doing truck checks and such. Points awarded for each task, weighted toward responses and standby because SAFER's objective is to get more responders on the scene.
    We've only had two takers and only one of them qualified.
