Fall Grant News
The Assistance to Firefighters Grant program deadline has passed, wrapping up the 2011 federal grant season. Spillman grant specialist Cathy Thompson helped eight agencies complete their AFG applications. Cathy is available to help all Spillman customers apply for software grants, but recommends agencies contact her at least six weeks before the application is due for optimal results.
The next federal grants on the horizon are the Department of Homeland Security grants, scheduled to be released in early 2012. In the meantime, public safety agencies can apply for private grants. The National Rifle Association Foundation offers grants to police departments and other public safety organizations. Deadlines vary by state.
