For the 5th consecutive year, VFIS of Texas and Texas Mutual Insurance Company are sponsoring a need-based Health & Wellness Grant program for fire departments and non-profit EMS organizations in Texas. VFIS of Texas and Texas Mutual have donated $180,000 towards this grant which was presented at the annual SFFMA Annual Conference and Convention in San Marcos in June.
Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded based on financial need and are intended to encourage participation in a health & wellness program to prevent emergency responder deaths and injuries. Departments will need to apply for the grant, expend the funds and then send in copies of receipts in order to receive the grant funds.
** Grant deadline is December 31, 2017 **
