  • AFG Training Grant

    Looking for any insight on writing an AFG Training application. We have written successful SAFER and AFG equipment grants in the past, just never a training application. We are looking to send the whole department to RIT class. Its a in depth 3 day class. Are there any funding maximums? We are including the cost of class per member and overtime costs. I am assuming the application needs to stress NFPA Standards? Along with having open seats available to surrounding departments you mutual aid with? Any other pointers would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    It must be comprehensive innature, how many hours, how many weeks, how many students, who is teaching it and what are their qualifications. Be sure it discusses that the class has hand on training, is instructor led and leads to certification hopefully at a National or State level.
