The Osage Nation is announcing its 2011 Targeted Emergency Services Grant in which eligible rural emergency response entities in Osage County can apply for up to $20,000.
The total grant is for $275,000 and each eligible applicant can apply for a maximum amount of $20,000, according to a news release. The purpose of this grant is to expand or enhance emergency services that serve communities within the boundaries of the Osage Nation.
“The targeted services grant will focus on emergency services and specifically rural volunteer fire departments that already operate on a shoe string budget, and we hope to provide some much needed supplemental funding,” said Jennifer Tiger, Director of Strategic Planning and Grants Management. “The Osage Nation is committed to helping sustain critical services in our communities.”
The deadline for submission is Oct. 14 at 4 p.m.
To be eligible for the grant, applicants are limited to rural volunteer fire departments; volunteer fire departments in communities with less than 1,500 persons; Emergency Medical Service providers and organizations offering emergency training such as First Aid-CPR-AED.
Applicants can contact Chris Standing Bear at (918) 287-5633 or Otto Hamilton at (918) 287-5584 at the Osage Nation Office of Strategic Planning & Grants Management for more information or to request an application packet.
