Thermal Grant Funding Ideas


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any ideas on purchasing a thermal through grant funding other than Homeland Security or UASI? Ours are getting long in the tooth and I am trying to come up with some "creative" grant funding ideas.

 

UASI is probably the best bet going right now. I believe there are quite a number of stipulations though. It has to be new technology and provide a capability you don't already have. We were looking at some grants for other technology, let me find out what they were.

Another option would be a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). This can be earmarked by the city manager (or whomever your municipal/county manager happens to be)for "public safety" and you can use this to purchase new equipment. With CDBG funds, you could do a one-for-one swap for a new imager, even if it was the same model you previously had. There is no stipulation that it has to be "new technology" or upgraded technology over your existing equipment, as in the UASI funding.

Sorry I was a little slow on seeing the responses to this. Thanks for the ideas. It looks like we are going to be able to pull out a couple of L3 DS650s to replace our dying Mark II and DS200. It will be nice to have like equipment in both ships. Is anybody using the DS650? Like it, hate it, any operational tricks anybody has learned?
