Volunteer Fire Assistance

The VFA program, formerly known as the Rural Community Fire Protection program, is administered by State Forestry agencies through 50-50 cost -sharing grants to local fire departments located in rural communities. The program's main goal is to provide Federal financial, technical and other assistance in the organization, training and equipping of fire departments in rural areas, defined as having a population of 10,000 or less.

Contact your State Forester's Office for grant application forms and deadlines.
