I'm considering applying for a SAFER grant to jumpstart a junior/explorer program at our department. I'm wondering what kinds of things I should budget for. Some of what I have in mind so far:
- Promotional Materials
- Training Turnouts
- Tuition for state explorer academy in the summer
What else should I budget for that I haven't considered yet?
Pagers if they are going to be responding to calls.
Thanks for the input. I'm not sure if those would be eligible under SAFER or not, I'll have to ask. Good idea.
Is there any other formality or procedure for filling the form.
I don't have experience with grant writing, but I'd consider putting "staffing" into the SAFER for the program. I don't know how you run yours, but I know that we went after the grant at my department to add employees, so it may be an opportunity to add a training position to the department.
