New Hampshire FD wins fire grant for forestry truck

First AFG vehicle award in New Hampshire since 2018

During recent award rounds for the Assistance to Firefighters Grants, New Hampshire’s Tamworth Fire Department brought home a big win.

In the first AFG vehicle award in The Granite State since 2018, Tamworth FD was awarded $179,937 for a Type V forestry truck.

“Vehicle acquisitions are one of the most challenging grants to win,” says Greg Bavis, Grants Consultant for First Responder Grants. “With the right grant-writing training, a compelling narrative, and a thorough, data-driven application, any department can bring home a grant that helps their operations and benefits their community.”
