FIRE Act Grant Application Period Is November 4-December 6

October 29, 2013 – This U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released the Fiscal Year 2013 Assistance to Firefighters grant program (FIRE Act) grant guidance and application kit. The application period for the FY 2013 FIRE Act grant program opens Monday, November 4, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Friday, December 6, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

More than $320.92 million is available for FIRE Act grants, less the 10 percent set aside for the Fire Prevention & Safety (FP&S) grants, to help fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency management service (EMS) organizations meet their fire fighting and emergency response needs.

The FIRE Act grant program supports organizations that lack the tools and resources necessary to more effectively protect the health and safety of the public and their emergency response personnel with respect to fire and all other hazards.

Grant guidance for this program is available here and here.
