The Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS) is accepting applications for its Fire Prevention & Safety Grant Program (CFDA Number: 97.004) (Funding Opportunity Number: DHS-14-GPD-044-000-98).
Deadline: April 17
Each year, 10% of the Assistance for Firefighters Grant Program goes for the FP&S program. The primary AFG goal is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations. FP&S supports projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The primary goal is to reduce injury and prevent death among high-risk populations.
FP&S offers grants in two categories: (1) activities designed to reach high-risk target groups and mitigate incidences of death and injuries caused by fire and fire-related hazards; and (2) research and development activities aimed at improving firefighter safety. The FP&S program generally runs a fiscal year behind in its grantmaking.
Tribal and local governments, fire departments, public and private colleges and universities and nonprofits can apply grants. FEMA will make approximately 150 awards totaling $34 million.
