Attn: Grant Deadline is June 11, 2015
In 2012 the NYS Dept of Homeland Security & Emergency Services opened a grant for Recruitment & Retention funding for volunteer fire and EMS agencies.
In the 2012/13 grant period they had over 350k in funding available, the max grant request was $25,000.
We have had success in our work being used for two prior recruitment & retention grants in 2013/2014. Please reach out to us ASAP for assistance if you would like our assistance in having your department or EMS region to write for this 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.
