Maximum Grant Amount

New Jersey American Water is accepting applications to the Volunteer Fire and EMS grant program. Funding is available for volunteer fire departments and emergency responders (e.g., ambulance and first aid squads) located in the company’s service areas.

Grants are awarded to cover the costs associated with purchasing personal protective gear, communications equipment, firefighting/emergency responder tools, water handling equipment, training and related activities/materials used to support community fire protection. Reimbursement for specific fire training classes and EMS classes, including the cost of training manuals and student workbooks, is eligible.

Only uniformed volunteer fire departments serving New Jersey American Water's service territory are eligible to receive funding.  Regional or countywide applications are encouraged to maximize the number of fire and emergency organizations that would benefit from the grants. 

A deadline has not been noted. The online application form is currently available.
