The Department of Homeland Security has posted the FY2009 Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program Guidance. The application period is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, April 15, 2009, at 8:00 a.m.   Applications for these grants must be received by Wednesday, May 20, 2009, at 5:00 p.m.

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.
