The NYS Dept of Homeland Security & Emergency Services opened a grant for Recruitment & Retention funding for volunteer fire and EMS agencies in 2012/2013, then again in 2015.
We just found out NYS DHSES is doing the same Recruitment & Retention grant for 2018/19, the deadline is Sept 14, 17:00, 2018.
In the 2012/13 grant period they had over 350k in funding available, the max grant request is capped at $25,000.
Grant Deadline is 9/14/18
We have had success in our work being used for prior recruitment & retention grants. Please reach out to us ASAP for assistance if you would like help in having your department or EMS region to apply for this amazing grant opportunity.
Departments can be involved in both a regional grant and an individual grant. See the website for further details and reach out to us with questions.
