FY22 Fire Protection Grant Summary

231 Applications were reviewed and scored.

  • The state was divided into north and south sections.
  • Three councilors from the north reviewed and scored applications from the south, and three councilors from the south reviewed applications from the north.
  • The three scores for each department were merged and averaged. Each department’s ISO rating was then added to the raw score for a final ranking. Any outliers were reviewed by the council. This method ensures that all applicants were evaluated equally with respect to the critical nature of the request and their ISO rating.
