I have mentioned on this site more than a few times about the availability of and need to apply for grant money from both the state and federal level. From a news story from 2 days ago we learn of a great success in landing this money and this time from the Fort Thomas Fire Department. Kudos to them for finding, applying, and making a good case for the funds. The money will be used to add an additional communications channel for emergency response.
In the current economic environment that we are in local governments must find these alternative funding methods to get some of their pet projects accomplished. If you know of any other grant opportunities please respond in the comments section below.
