The Rhode Island Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation’s (RIAFC) scholarship program was developed to recruit and retain volunteers in response to a critical need identified by our Association’s volunteer fire departments and emergency medical services providers. The RIAFC scholarship program is funded by a 2018 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant through the Department of Homeland Security.
There are 3 attachments that will explain our grant’s benefits (Chiefs Handout), describe the requirements and process (Admin Guide), and how to request funds (Request Form).
Our Grant Manager is the same team that managed our 1st SAFER Grant. The Adapt Team is always available to answer your questions at either 855-VOLFIRE, or at Benefits@Volunteerfirefighter.org.
