    Assistance to Firefighters Grant will open 2013 in April time frame

    or

    US Department of Agriculture Rural Facilities grant program

    It really sound to me like you would really benefit from taking a grant writing class from one of us.

    The cap on USDA grants is $50k, varying by state. Any amount over that point has to be through a USDA loan so on the average truck you'd have to finance it through them, since not being able to finance it through a commerical lender is a prerequisite.

    AFG is a tough nut to crack but it can be done for any size coverage area if the need is there. The smallest I can think of in recent history was a pumper in the 2011 AFG for $250k in a town of 400 in the midwest. Have several others in the hunt this year but no signs of progress yet (like most playing the waiting game).
