The FY2016 AFG application period is anticipated to occur sometime in September. The open application period dates will be released as soon as the information becomes available. Start planning and preparing for your application now by reviewing the application assistance tools provided by FEMA.
AFG provides financial assistance directly to fire departments, nonaffiliated EMS organizations and State Fire Training Academies to enhance response capabilities to fire and fire-related hazards. The primary goal is to provide organizations with training and equipment to meet firefighting and related response needs. Since 2001, A FG has helped firefighters and other first responders to obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training and other resources needed to protect the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards.
