DHS announces 2007 Fire Act Grants
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Grants and Training is accepting applications for the latest round of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. DHS plans to distribute a total of $492.3 million in this round.
Fire departments use the grants to purchase equipment and to fund training, health and fitness programs and facility modifications needed for those programs. There are some changes to the AFG program this year, and the Fairfax, Va.-based International Association of Fire Chiefs plans to release a program guide early this month. Information on the guide is available at www.iafc.org.
May 4 is the deadline to apply for the grants. Applications and more information are available at www.firegrantsupport.com.
