Fire Prevention and Safety Grant Application Period Opens February 18

February 11, 2014 – The Assistance to Firefighters (FIRE Act) Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant application period begins February 18, 2014, and runs through March 21, 2014.

FP&S grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and fire fighters 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 grants and expanded eligible use of funds to include fire fighter safety research and development.
