Equipment/Training Grants

The FFRA will offer one (1) equipment/training grant at the end of 2020 to members. Active members can apply to have their training or their department chosen to receive one $2500 grant that can be used at the discretion of the department for training or equipment.
An individual or department will not be awarded an FFRA grant in consecutive years.

Due to Covid 19 and low donations in 2020, we are suspending our Grant program. We are hopeful that we can continue this program in 2021. Thank you for your interest.
