Grants Programs and Other Collaborative Initiatives
Fire Services Recovery Grant Program
The Montgomery County Volunteer and Combination Fire Departments have faced economic challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a loss of operating revenue and decreased fundraising opportunities. To support their recovery, the Montgomery County Recovery Office has established the Fire Services Recovery Grant Program. This needs-based grant program, funded with $1,500,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act, aims to address the economic impacts by providing financial assistance to eligible Fire Departments.
