Grant Description

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency╔к_s (FEMA) Grant Programs Directorate is responsible for the implementation and administration of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program. The purpose of AFG is to enhance through financial assistance the safety of the public and firefighters regarding fire and fire-related hazards.

Congress appropriated $404,190,000 for the FY 2011 AFG (Public Law 112-10). FEMA strives to provide clear guidance and application tools to assist applicants. This package provides an overview of AFG and grant application information as well as an explanation of FEMA requirements for a successful grant request.
