VOLUNTEER firefighting brigades in northern Victoria can now apply for grants of up to $250,000, thanks to a new $10 million program funded by the State Government.
“I encourage brigades to take advantage of this program and apply now,” member for northern Victoria, Mark Gepp said.
The program will be administered by the CFA to support vital volunteer brigade upgrades, as well as local initiatives that strengthen volunteerism and brigade culture.
Grants will be provided to projects that address a range of key criteria, including:
■Addressing immediate needs and enhancing operational capability.
■Improving culture, diversity and fairness.
■Strengthening volunteer leadership skills.
