Kentucky Emergency Management (KYEM) is pleased to announce the application period for the fiscal year 2014 Search and Rescue Aid Program. The purpose of this program is to assist Kentucky search and rescue squads with solving identified problems and preparedness gaps. Priority for grant funding will be given to squads that have no other means of funding, i.e., federal grants, KOHS grants, etc., and to requests that fulfill unique needs within a community or region and teams that do not charge for services.
The FY 14 cycle opens on July 9, 2013. Applications are due to the applicable KYEM Regional Coordination Center by the close of business on August 30, 2013. Applications received after this deadline will not be accepted.
