ATTENTION: Due to COVID-19 and Funding delays, the Competitive Grant Review process has been delayed. Panel & Peer review is currently taking place, anticipated review completion by mid to late June 2020. As a result, Grant Award notifications are delayed until these reviews are completed or by early July 2020 at the earliest.
The program represents a strong collaborative effort with the U.S. Forest Service, the Utah Fire Marchall’s office, the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy, and the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands to provide assistance to Utah’s fire departments.
