img helpHelp for those who help others.

As an incentive for those who serve, FASNY has developed the Higher Education Learning Plan (FASNY HELP). This program provides you with tuition reimbursement for courses taken at a New York State chartered community college.

With FASNY HELP, you’re eligible to have up to 100% of your tuition reimbursed in exchange for maintaining your grades and fulfilling defined service requirements. You must also be a “member in good standing” in one of New York’s volunteer fire companies during both your school years and service payback period.

The FASNY HELP program is made possible through a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant awarded by the US Department of Homeland Security.
