Fire Prevention and Safety Grant Application Period Set to Open

The FY 2013 Fire Prevention & Safety Grants (FP&S) Application period will open Tuesday, February 18, at 8 a.m. EST, and close Friday, March 21 at 5 p.m. EST.

FP&S Grants are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and support 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. In 2005, Congress reauthorized funding for FP&S and expanded the eligible uses of funds to include Firefighter Safety Research and Development.
