“I’ve known Kurt in the grant area since 2003. Kurt was the driving force that allowed me to receive our first Assistance to Firefighters Grant, and throughout the years, and over a million dollars in grant money later, he has been an amazing resource for grant training and consulting. As a recent student of Kurt’s online course, it provided me with updated essential training in the comfort of my home. I would definitely recommend First Responder Grants as your grant resource.”
— Brian Andrus, West Marshall Fire Department, Benton, Kentucky
