    Has anybody ever tried to get a grant from the government to finace purchases, etc??

    I work ful time or the fire dept and we get them all the time and they are not small they are large sums of money. Thought this might be worth lookng into! :cool:

    From what others have experienced it's my understanding that they're extreemly difficult to obtain. There's been quite a few discussions on this topic. Many have tried and there's only a couple who have succeeded.

    merlin, unless you are a non-profit, there's really nothing out there in the way of grants. more often than not, most things you might read about them are scams intended to get your money.
