ASSIST Program renewed for 2017

     Understanding the ASSIST Program has proven to be an excellent investment in members’ loss prevention activities, the NIRMA Board of Directors has unanimously approved continuing the program in 2017.
     During their January 27 meeting in Lincoln, board members discussed the important role the program has played in helping members achieve their safety initiatives.  The board then voted to approve a funding level of up to $150,000 for this year, with the application deadline of November 1.
     The ASSIST Program issued its 10th round of grant funding in the amount of nearly $124,000 in December 2016, which increased to more than $930,000 the total amount NIRMA has invested in member loss prevention activities and initiatives since 2008.
