The first round of funding for the Boulder County Emergency Services Grant Program was offered to fire districts that serve the mountain and rural areas of unincorporated Boulder County. The first round of grants will address:
a.) Supplemental funding for the needs of fire departments in mountainous and rural areas;
b.) Small and large equipment or small capital projects or needs; and
c.) Operational costs of search and rescue organizations.
* A second round of funding for other emergency and public safety services (including search & rescue) will be awarded in early 2024.
The Emergency Services Grant Program Advisory Committee (ESGPAC) will provide recommendations to Boulder County regarding the grant program portion of the Emergency Services Sales and Use Tax which was approved by voters in 2022 as “County Issue 1B.” The committee will review grant applications beginning in November 2023 and make recommendations on the first set of grants by the end of 2023.
