New grant training in New England! Our friends at New Hampshire’s Berlin & Gorham FD are graciously hosting 2 days of grant-writing training for anyone in public safety, first responder, and emergency management.

Does this sound like your agency?

Your agency lacks funds for vital equipment or training.You applied for grants in the past, but just can’t seem to get your application into the winner’s circle.

Times are tight and your budget is shrinking, but grants seem so intimidating, you’ll never figure out how to get that crucial additional funding for your department.

You’re not the only one. Fire Departments, Law Enforcement Agencies and other Emergency Services Agencies nationwide have felt the sting of the budget ax.

They could’ve spent another year going without.

But they did something else. They took action, and they got that crucial grant funding.

Register today and get ready to make your way to the grant winner’s circle!

From public, corporate, and non-profit sources, major public safety grants will be opening soon and throughout 2020. But what really matters is whether or not your agency is prepared to take your best shot at winning those crucial grants.

It’s not easy to know the ins and outs of today’s grants. That’s why our training gives you the “meat and potatoes” you need to put out the most competitive grants you can.

“I have attended several of Kurt’s informative and educational classes and found them to be presented in language that was easy to understand. His post-seminar guidance and assistance in helping us with all of our applications has been, to say the least, invaluable.”
