2017 Grant Opportunity for Volunteer Fire & First Aid SquadsJanuary 1, 2017
Deadline to Apply for 2017 Grants – November 1, 2017
Every day is a good day to salute and thank the countless volunteers who give their time and talents as fire and first aid responders, caring for the sick and injured and protecting and saving the lives and property of others. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that our Volunteer Fire and First Aid Squad Grant Program is back in 2017 for squads in Monmouth and Ocean counties.
Since the program began in 1997, more than $925,000 has been awarded to LOCAL squads. Annual grants of $500 are offered to squads that have tax exempt status with the IRS – 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) – and meet eligibility requirements. If you volunteer with a squad and want to learn more, please contact the Foundation and we’ll answer any questions you may have.
* Please note this program is currently not offered to squads in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Gloucester counties.
