NSW RFSA Grant Scheme - Advice from the President

Tuesday, 05 April 2016

 Dear Members,


 You may recall that I advised Members in November 2015 via the RFSA newsletter and information published on the Association’s website that the NSW RFSA Grant Scheme for 2016 would be postponed until further notice, whilst a review was conducted of the Association’s Giving Programs.


 At the February 2016 State Council meeting, discussions were held about the Association’s strategic objectives, including our Giving Programs and therefore the Grant Scheme.


It was resolved by State Council that a new style of Grant Scheme be launched later in 2016. The details of this new Grant Scheme are currently being resolved and will be communicated to Members in the second half of 2016.


At this point, Grant applications are not currently being considered by the Association.


All of the Association’s other Giving Programs remain unchanged which means sponsorship applications for training, events and brigade celebrations continue to be received and reviewed, a Volunteers’ Family Day is currently being organised in RFSA Division 1 and nominations for the Association’s Honours and Awards are open until 30 April.


I do encourage you to keep up to date with the Association’s news and initiatives via our website, newsletters and RFSA communications structure as any advice regarding the revised Grant Scheme will be shared on these platforms.


Yours faithfully,




Ken Middleton
