Indiana Homeland Security Foundation awards grants

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Homeland Security Foundation has approved more than $373,000 in grants to local fire departments, law enforcement agencies and emergency medical service providers across the state.

The focus of the foundation is to support the future of the public safety and to provide grant funding to local agencies for critical public safety needs across Indiana. Grants up to $4,000 are available for projects such as equipping emergency responders with personal protective equipment, acquiring equipment, and providing training, radios and technology equipment.

For example, the Hope Volunteer Fire Department in south central Indiana’s Bartholomew County received $4,000 to purchase a backup generator for its new fire station, which will be a disaster relief site.
