To get started, you can use any of the resources available online for assistance in your grant search. Please note that grants often change and may no longer be a viable source of assistance, we are here to assist you in acquiring an AED program with or without a grant.

A grant project can take weeks or months to complete. If your needs are more immediate, we suggest looking for civic groups such as those listed above. If your project is aimed at the well-being of children, look up your local Optimist Clubs.
Churches often look directly to their own congregations for help.
Beware of False Grant Schemes
Grant schemes are plentiful; some AED dealers mislead customers by offering brand-name AEDs and making the customer go through unnecessary steps to apply for the grants. They may ask customers to release confidential information and waste valued time with the intention of making the customer feel like they are getting a deal when they are not.
