Rural Fire Assistance grants are now available to help local fire departments protect lives and property.

The federal government funds 90 percent of requests, while the RFD contributes 10 percent in funding or in-kind goods or services.Instructions for the application process can be found at the following website: http://www.fws.gov/midwest/Fire.
