Thanks to Governor Jim Pillen and the Nebraska State Legislature for providing $5 million in grants for the State of Nebraska Volunteer Fire Departments (VFD). All NE VFDs are invited to apply for the VFD Radio grant. This grant is intended to supply volunteer fire departments with radio equipment to facilitate communication with state agencies.
- NOTE: While we would like to supply all 472 Nebraska VFDs with SRS Radio Kits, that will not be possible during the 2023/2024 budget year due to time and budget constraints. Instead, we will be using a selection process for all applications received by 9/30/23. We estimate 172 SRS Radio Kits will be awarded for 2023/2024. Applicants will be notified by 10/31/23, if selected to receive an SRS Radio Kit.
What to expect:
- Information will be disseminated through the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighter Association (NSVA) and SRS System Users Group.
- Email questions to:
