Ken Akerley Training Grant General Information:
The Ken Akerley Training Grant Program, implemented in 2002, is designed to provide rural firefighters, in need of current training, the opportunity to attend the annual ASFA Fall Training Conference. Our project and criteria for applying are outlined below.
*Provide needed assistance for rural firefighters to attend certified training at the ASFA Annual Conference in September. Specifically, we will provide airfare, hotel, and conference fees, as needed, for each selected individual excluding pre-conference training. Applicants may attend pre-conference training at their own expense.
*Program provides reimbursement for expenses. Applicant, if approved, makes their own reservations. In an effort to use the grant wisely, airfare must be 21 day advance notice pricing. Reimbursement will not be made if approved applicants cancel or fail to attend all classes.
* Applications must be received prior to conference. Grant funds are limited and applicants are encouraged to apply before July 15th.
