“The Northwest Fire District received a $3.1 million regional Assistance to Firefighters Grant award for dual-band radios & repeaters that will benefit 10 agencies operating in and around Tucson, AZ. One of your students (me) has had great success writing for these grants, due to your training.”

James F. Grasham, Northwest Fire District, Arizona

“We were awarded the grant for the new Livescan fingerprint machine and KLER records management interface. Between these and past awards, we’ve received over $410,000 in grant funding. Figured you like to know when you successfully assist students.”

We turn first responders into grant writers who get funded.

Training Terms & Conditions

First Responder Grants is very sensitive to the budgetary constraints necessary for our clientele, and it has always been our goal to maintain our tuition costs at an absolute minimum. We have been able to achieve this goal through adoption of certain policies and procedures.


Approximately one week prior to your scheduled training you will receive, via email, an electronic file of the handouts that will be used during the training.

Handouts are generally in PDF or MS-Word.doc file format. You are responsible for printing those handouts and bringing them with you to the training, as there will not be printed handouts at the training.

If you do not receive that email with handout files, within 3 days prior to your scheduled training, please contact the scheduled instructor via email or phone to arrange having them sent to you.

This saves us considerable shipping and printing costs.

Hosted at Public Safety Agencies

Our training is “hosted” by other public safety agencies to avoid incurring “venue rental costs”. This holds down travel expenses for our students by being presented regionally.

Sometimes local demands or unforeseen problems force an agency to cancel their scheduled training.

Minimum Number of Students

Due to economic considerations, training is scheduled contingent upon a minimum number of students (15) being pre-registered to attend. Occasionally, an agency is unable to achieve that goal.

Therefore, 30 days prior to any scheduled event, if the agency has been unable to recruit the minimum number of attendees, they have the option of rescheduling their training to a future date to continue to recruit students, or they may choose to cancel the training. This option is entirely the agency’s choice and is beyond the control of First Responder Grants.

We would caution students that if they must book non-refundable air travel or hotel reservations that they NOT do so until within the 30-day window before their training and after first checking with us to be certain that the training has been “locked in” for the date shown. First Responder Grants will not be responsible for and is unable to refund individual travel costs of any kind.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Full payment is required before or on the first day of class. If you are unable to attend training, First Responder Grants will transfer your registration to any other in-person class or live online training. If First Responder Grants cancels training, you may transfer your registration or request a full refund. Any refunds paid by credit card are refunded minus fees charged to First Responder Grants.
