Grant Funding for Public Safety Agencies

Written by The JVCKENWOOD Team on 3/14/18 9:27 AM

You’re seeking available funding opportunities for your department – where do you start?

For many public safety agencies, grant funding helps bridge the gap between the department’s resources and its needs. Each year, agencies across the U.S. have the opportunity to apply for BILLIONS of dollars in grant funding from public and private entities. In fact, FEMA allocated $310.5 million to the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program in FY2017 and FY2016 - a $4.5 million increase in available AFG funding in FY2015.

There are many resources for departments who are searching for grants, but locating available grant funding is only half the battle. Whether your community is rural or urban, applying for funding can be time consuming, complex, and competitive.

Luckily, applying for grant funding has never been easier.  We’ve teamed up with Fire Grants Help, and Police Grants Help to bring you a free Grant Assistance Program. Whether you’re just starting your grant project or need to add the final touches, FireGrantsHelp or PoliceGrantsHelp consultants will assist you during every stage of the grant process for P25 dual band and single band radios.
