FirstNet Grants Listings

Grants are an excellent resource when seeking to fund a federally mandated or state/local/tribal project(s) that is without any other available funding source. As such, there are multiple grant sources that are available to assist with funding FirstNet projects.  These grants are made available to be a solution in funding and solving the evolving capability challenges in public safety, such as gaps in interoperable communications. They can help in meeting the costs of planning, training, exercise, and equipment, as well as additional personnel in some instances. Any State, Local, Tribal, or NGO can benefit from these grants when existing operational budgets are insufficient to meet the operational requirements of an agency and the needs of a community.
