    Default New Department Grants

    We are in the process of purchasing land for a new station. We have simply outgrown the current building that was built in the late 60's. We are landlocked in the current location so we will be building from sctatch. Anyone ever received any grant money for building a new station or know where any funds may be available?

    Here's a link to an old thread discussing alternative funding. There have been many such discussions over the years, and several have some excellent links listed for more info. This one includes info on the USDA's funding (grant/loan program) for higher priced items such as buildings and trucks.

    You can also check on a state level if there is any grants available thru your State Fire Marshal's office. There are also various local and state (as well as national) private community foundations. Do some research either online or at your local library using the Foundation Center (either online directory or research books).

    I think the deadline for the USDA Grants & Loans have passed ...I beleive it was Febuary 1st as we put one in but we were rejected on being in too good a finicial posistion. basically they are for organizations that have a problem getting credit or a loan.

    Check the website usda.gov - community improvement grants for more information.

    Hey Oaklevel,

    You might want to try www.usfa.fema.gov/grants/fedguide. There are numerous grants here for many different things and other links to grant programs. I do know that the fire act grant will not go to new construction.
