I have heard that there is a 2003 Grant called the Homeland Security Training Grant that is only available to Full-time Paid Departments. Part-time paid or volunteer departments are excluded from the money. As Vice-President of our association I am trying to put a letter together for our congress people to try to convince them of the importance of sharing the money amongst all depts. If anyone has any further info on this, I would appreciate it. My direst email is jmbest78@aol.com. Thank you!
