Dear FireGrantsHelp Member,

In this month’s eNews, Jerry Brant breaks down what applicants need to know about the SAFER grant 2020 program priorities and eligibility requirements, and also explains why departments need to be cautious and read the fine print before spending CARES Act funds.

The SAFER application period is now open. An award can provide your department with the personnel needed to reduce overtime cost and meet operational best practices so you can provide better protection to your community. If you don’t know where to start, contact FireGrantsHelp for hands-on assistance writing and preparing your SAFER application.
