NJ American Water Announces Volunteer Firefighter and Emergency Responder Grant Guidelines

New Jersey American Water has announced guidelines for its 2016 grant program for volunteer fire departments and emergency responders located in the company’s service areas.

New Jersey American Water Volunteer Firefighter and Emergency Responder grants will be awarded to cover the costs associated with purchasing personal protective gear, communications equipment, firefighting tools, water handling equipment, training, and related activities/materials that will be used to support their operations.

The maximum grant amount is $1,000.

Only uniformed volunteer fire departments in New Jersey American Water’s service territory are eligible to receive funding. Regional or county-wide applications are encouraged to maximize the number of fire and emergency organizations that benefit from a grant.

See the New Jersey American Water website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
