City of Lincoln
Fire & Rescue Department
On an ongoing basis, LF&R constantly seeks alternative funding to support the many needs of the department by requesting grant funding whenever possible. When grant funds are awarded, the department and the community benefit, as limited tax dollars may be re appropriated to other needs. Since 2001 LF&R has requested approximately $14 million dollars and has received approximately $9.6 million dollars in grant funding. These highly competitive grants involve thousands of fire departments making similar requests annually.
