FARA Institute Reimbursement

Limited funds are available to reimburse FARA public safety members to travel to the Symposium. Before you request any funds you must exhaust the possibility of getting travel funds from your agency. Because we want to help as many people as possible to get tot he symposium we ask that you request only what you need. For example some agencies are able to get funding for registration fees but not for airfare, while others may be able to get travel funds but not registration fees.
