The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry is accepting grant applications for the Volunteer Fire Assistance (VFA) program. Funding is available for equipment.

Examples of equipment/apparatus which may be purchased with grant funds are as follows: Nomex clothing, bunker gear, hoses, nozzles, hand tools, radios, generators, foam application equipment, slip-on pumping units, materials and labor required to outfit and equip excess military vehicles.

Only communities with under 10,000 population counts (current census) may be considered for funding. However, multi-community department projects may be approved even though the 10,000 population limit is exceeded within the area served, providing no single community served exceeds the 10,000 population. Only departments officially recognized and authorized by resolution or ordinance of the legally constituted governing body of the area served will be considered for grant funding.

This is a 50% matching fund program. Federal funds will pay up to 50% of approved program expenditure costs with local departments paying at least 50% or more.
