Fire Protection Grants will provide two types of grants: individual department grants and county-wide project grants. Grants may be used for the following projects:

  • Facility construction
  • Major facility improvements
  • Land acquisition
  • Single large infrastructure project
  • Structural apparatus

Departments may apply for only one project in only one critical needs category listed below:

  • Fire apparatus/equipment
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Communications
  • Facility construction/improvement
  • Training
  • Water
  • Need that will clearly have significant impact on Insurance Service Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification

Amount: Dependent on eligibility, as follows:

  • The maximum amount awarded to a single applicant (either an individual department grant or a county-wide project grant) will not exceed $200,000 for the following projects: Facility construction, major facility improvements, land acquisition, single large infrastructure project, and structural apparatus
  • The maximum amount awarded to a single applicant (either an individual department grant or a county-wide project grant) will not exceed $100,000 for all other critical needs, but only one single project will be awarded

Matching funds are required, as follows:

  • Grant requests of $10,000 or less require no matching commitment
  • Grant requests of $10,001 to $50,000 require a 5% commitment
  • Grant requests of $50,001 to $100,000 require a 10% commitment
  • Grant requests of $100,001 to $200,000 require a 20% commitment

Eligibility:

  1. All fire departments currently certified and funded by the New Mexico State Fire Marshal’s Office are eligible to apply for an Individual Department Grant.
  2. County Administrative Offices having administrative responsibility for more than one district/department may apply for a County-wide Project Grant as long as each district within the County is compliant with the requirements of the grant application, (i.e., NFIRS, Pump Tests, etc.). The county-wide project must benefit all the departments within the County. Note: A County Administrative Office applying for a grant does not prevent departments within the County from applying for an Individual Department Grant.
