Fire departments seeking federal grant money from FEMA in the form of Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) are able to submit applications now.  The FEMA opened the application period for the AFG program yesterday, April 15, 2009.  The Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program application period will close Wednesday, May 20, 2009, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

From the FEMA official notice:

The Department of Homeland Security has posted the FY2009 Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program Guidance on the AFG Website. The application period is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, April 15, 2009, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Applications for these grants must be received by Wednesday, May 20, 2009, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
Nationally, the AFG awards, which will be distributed in phases, will ultimately provide approximately $510 million to fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations throughout the country. AFG awards aim to enhance response capabilities and to more effectively protect the health and safety of the public with respect to fire and other hazards. The grants enable local fire departments and emergency medical services organizations to purchase or receive training, conduct first responder health and safety programs, and buy equipment and response vehicles.

The AFG Program is administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Grant Programs Directorate in coordination with the U.S. Fire Administration.

Gatchell Grant Resources, LLC.  would like to thank all of our FY 2008 AFG customers who are enjoying their new PPE, equipment, and new vehicles.  We are hoping for another VERY successful 2009 fire act season!  Gatchell Grant Resources was very pleased to see such a high percentage of our FY 2008 customers receiving federal grant money for their projects!
