FEMA:AFG (FIRE GRANTS) - Black Diamond

FEMA: AFG (Assistance to Firefighters Grants)

The primary goal of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical services organizations. Since 2001, AFG 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. The Grant Programs Directorate of the Federal Emergency Management Agency administers the grants in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration. For fiscal year 2005, Congress reauthorized the Assistance to Firefighters Grants for an additional 5 years through 2010.

Fire departments having questions regarding the AFG Grants can reach the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Grants Program Directorate (GPD) AFG Program staff at 1-866-274-0960, or via email at firegrants@dhs.gov.
