Assistance to Firefighters Grants 20th Anniversary
Updated On: Jun 11, 2021
This month marks the 20th anniversary of our Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG). The program, which also includes Staffing for Adequate Emergency Response (SAFER) and Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grants, was authorized by Congress to provide federal funding directly to local fire departments and emergency organizations.
