Search and Rescue New Initiatives Fund

SAR NIF provides annual funding for new projects (or initiatives), that will improve the National Search and Rescue Program. SAR NIF projects must address at least one of the six National SAR Strategies:

  • Partnerships

  • Multi-Jurisdictional Exercises

  • Technology and Innovation

  • Interoperability

  • Data and Information

  • Volunteers

All of the proposals for these projects are carefully reviewed and ranked in order of merit. The annual funding for these projects is then distributed in that order.
