CERT Grant Opportunities

Each summer, Volunteer Florida releases a request for proposals for funding for Community Emergency Response Teams and Citizen Corps Programs throughout the State of Florida.

Eligible applicants include local units of government, counties and cities within the State of Florida, Fire Tax Districts, other tax districts, regional planning councils, state-supported community colleges, colleges and universities, and federally recognized tribes or nations within the State of Florida. Although 501(c)3 non-profit organizations are not directly eligible, local jurisdictions can subcontract with 501(c)3 organizations to perform these functions.

At this time, there is not an application open. Please sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on all of our funding opportunities. You may also email info@volunteerflorida.org if you have questions.

Volunteer Florida’s ability to offer this program is dependent on federal funding.
