The goal of the Fire Suppression System Grant Program is to contribute to adding lifesaving fire suppression systems and lower the financial barriers associated with the installation of Water Service/Fire Lines, Meter Vaults, Water Meters, and other public utility infrastructure components directly associated with the addition and/or upgrade of a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) compliant fire suppression system. This program is subject to funding availability and operates on a first-come, first-served basis. All projects must pertain to commercial or mixed-use buildings.
|There are 2 Grant Options that can be combined:||Range|
|Option 1 – Sprinkler System Grant||$7,500 - $15,000|
|Option 2 – Utility Infrastructure Grant||$15,000 - $25,000|
|Total Combined||$22,500 - $40,000|
Sprinkler System Grants are for sprinkler addition or upgrades. Utility Infrastructure Grants are for costs directly related to significant water service utility infrastructure upgrades. Both require an NFPA compliant fire suppression system. The property must be within the Sustainable Communities Area of the City (see attached map under program guidelines).
Grants require a 1:1 match from the applicant. Example: a $25,000 grant funding the exterior fire suppression infrastructure would require an additional $25,000 investment from the applicant for a total project investment of $50,000. Matching costs can include all work related to fire suppression system installation (interior and exterior).
