All fire companies, volunteer ambulance services and volunteer rescue squads are eligible for grant funding. The grants may be used for construction or renovation of a unit’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction. Applications will be accepted through October 21.

The maximum grant amount is $15,000 for fire companies and $10,000 for volunteer ambulance services. A total of $25 million will be awarded through the program.
