Applications Now Accepted For Firefighters Grants

January 5th, 2021

Applications are now being accepted for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grants program. Since 2001, the funding has helped firefighters and other first responders obtain critically needed resources necessary for protecting the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards. Funds are available to help volunteer fire departments and other eligible organizations to:

  • Enhance a fire department’s/safety organization’s ability to protect the health and safety of firefighters and the public.
  • Assist fire prevention programs and support firefighter health and safety research and development.
  • Increase or maintain the number of trained “front line” firefighters available in communities.

For more information, including eligibility criteria and application deadlines, click here. FEMA also offers assistance by phone at 1-866-274-0960, or email at firegrants@fema.dhs.gov. The agency is also sponsoring a series of webinars for hands-on assistance. Deadline to apply is Feb. 12.
