Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program

FEMA’s Fiscal Year 2019 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG) opened on Monday, February 3, 2020. The application period for the program will close on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 5:00 PM EST.

The purpose of the AFG Program is to enhance the safety of the public and firefighters with respect to fire and fire-related hazards. The program provides direct financial assistance to eligible fire departments, nonaffiliated emergency medical service (EMS) organizations and State Fire Training Academies (SFTA). The funds provide critically needed resources that equip and train emergency personnel to recognized standards, enhance operational efficiencies, foster interoperability, and support community resilience.

In this funding cycle FEMA will not be conducting in-person workshops to prepare you for your application efforts. In-person workshops will be conducted again this fall to prepare applicants for 2020 funding opportunities.  However, an online webinar is available.
