2019 Fireworks Tax Grant

Posted July 20, 2018
July 20, 2018

Georgia Fire Departments:

Please find attached the Georgia Firefighter Standards and Training Council policy and
application for the FY2019 Fireworks Tax Grants. Also, please understand that we have a limited
amount of monies and while all departments are welcome to make application, those departments
that demonstrate the most financial and operational need will be the primary consideration in the
Grant Review Committee’s and Council’s decision-making process.
The Grant Application period will begin on July 23, 2018 and must be received in the GFSTC
office by the close of business, 5:00pm, on August 24, 2018. Any applications received in the
office after that date and time will not be considered in the FY2019 process. Please either fax,
U.S. Mail, or deliver the application to Georgia Firefighter Standards and Training Council, 1000
Indian Springs Drive, Forsyth, Georgia 31029.
A date will be announced for the Grant Review Committee to meet. We will announce a date for
the GFSTC Council Meeting for the final approval of the grant awards by the Council. Any
department that is awarded a grant will have to complete a State of Georgia Vendor Management
Form before we can process the requisition for funding. This form will need to be correctly
completed and submitted for approval prior to any requisition request. GFSTC will supply the
departments with the form and assistance in completing it if necessary.
Also, please attach a copy of a vendor quote good for 6 months for the items that you are
requesting to purchase with the grant application.
Once again, please have all grant applications correctly completed and in the GFSTC office no
later than 5:00pm, August 24, 2018. If you need any assistance or have questions with the
application process, please contact the GFSTC office at 478-993-4521 and someone will assist
you.

Database Changes

Posted July 16, 2018
A change was implemented this weekend to our database.  The State Certification tab was changed to Certifications.  When you click on that tab a few drop down boxes will appear.  The first one is Compliance History.  This will give you the training hours submitted for 2016 & 2107 as of now.  This will only show what training hours have been entered for a person since our new database was implemented.  It will show whether the person is compliant or non-compliant regarding training hours.  If you click on State Certifcations tab, this will show you what certifications the person holds.
