AAA Roadside Emergency Responder Safety Grants Available

Accepting applications now through September 30

When AAA dispatches a service vehicle to assist one of its members with a roadside emergency, it's often joined by first responders from local law enforcement agencies, fire departments or EMS services. AAA values the efforts of those agencies and appreciates the financial challenge many face in obtaining the equipment necessary for these calls.

AAA receives many requests for contributions and this program will allow us to evaluate those requests on a number of criteria to assure the most effective distribution of funds. Consideration will be given to equipment that helps increase visibility, enhance communication or facilitate the safe and efficient clearing of travel lanes, including (but not limited to):

  • Heavy lift bags
  • Vests
  • Flares
  • Cones

Please complete the information in this request form. Providing relevant, detailed information will aid those evaluating these requests to determine the areas of greatest need.

Grant funds should be used in 2022 and cannot be used for staff compensation, travel, or any form of fees/dues. Requests should be limited to $5,000.

Deadline for Grant Submissions: Friday, September 30, 2022
