Application Period Now Open for FY 2011 Fire Prevention and Safety Grants

FEMA has opened the application period for the FY 2011 Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grants. Part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants program, FP&S Grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards.

The Fire Prevention and Safety Grants (FP&S) are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG), and are under the purview of the Grant Programs Directorate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FP&S Grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The primary goal is to target high-risk populations and reduce injury and prevent death. In 2005, Congress reauthorized funding for FP&S and expanded the eligible uses of funds to include Firefighter Safety Research and Development.

Take this opportunity to apply for funding to assist your fire department with fire prevention initiatives as well as firefighter health and safety programs. Applications are due April 27.

Find resources and tools such as the FY 2011 FP&S Guidance Get Ready Guide, Self Evaluation Sheet, Frequently Asked Questions, Application Tutorial, Narrative Worksheet, Research and Development grant information, and FP&S Grants Video online at www.fema.gov/firegrants/fpsgrants.
