Free grant assistance available for crucial utility vehicles
MEDINA, Minn. — More than $600 billion in nationwide grants is available to public safety agencies and local government each year, and even more has been freed up for COVID-19 response. Navigating the public grant process, however, can be complex and confusing, especially for first-time applicants.
As critical equipment, side-by-side and utility vehicles are available through these grants, and Polaris Government and Defense remains open as an essential supplier of UTVs. UTVs are used for urban and off-road patrol, search and rescue, movement of key public safety, medical and other personnel, distribution of food, water, ice, medicine and other supplies, including personal protective equipment (PPE).
Polaris recently expanded customer support services through a partnership that provides free and unlimited grant assistance from industry professionals. These grant experts will guide each customer throughout the process from research and application to narrative review, for the vehicles they need via five tailored websites:
