Grant Writing for Emergency Services

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session

Many agencies are underfunded but still are expected to meet their mission and goals. The fire service falls within this realm. Fire service equipment, training, and related costs such as insurance are not cheap. In the current economy of inflation, this situation is even worse. Grants can be a good option to help achieve projects that may not otherwise be funded. However, a major issue with grants is that people are not aware of the process and often follow myths vs. facts. This class will focus on the art of the grant writing process and how to be successful. It will dispel myths, explain the overall process, and give helpful hints as to how to increase your chances of obtaining grant funding.
