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.
