County Mini Grants

Each year a letter is sent to each set of our county commissioners. The letter states that $5,000 is available to them for “Basic EMS Needs”. It is up to each set of commissioners as to how the funds are spent and who will decide where the funds go. This is also a reimbursement process now. The RETAC retains copies of all County Expenditures.
