2019 Helping Heroes Grant Award
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Ratify the acceptance of a grant award from Flint Hill Resources for the 2019 Helping Heroes program.
Flint Hills Resources began the Helping Heroes program in 2012. This program provides grants for training, education, equipment, and emergency notification needs of Texas fire departments and emergency responders. Since starting the program, more than $1 million has been awarded to departments in Texas.
On August 14, 2019, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant application submitted by the County’s Office of Emergency Management for the Helping Heroes program.
The County was notified of a grant award in the amount of $4,700. That amount will cover the purchase of two (2) new laptops, charging stations, a portable printer, and mobile hotspots to be used in the field during operations for search and rescue, disaster plume mapping, evacuations, etc. There is no match required for this grant. The funds have already been sent to the County via direct deposit.
