The IAFF Grants Administration Department oversees the IAFF’s national grant programs, which total more than $20 million per year. Over the years, the IAFF has funded partnerships with a number of federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and others.
In addition to overseeing national grant programs, the Grants Administration Department coordinates grant reports; manages the program and financial oversight of grant awards; ensures compliance with all federal laws, regulations and executive orders; identifies new sources of funding; and assists with questions and requests for information from IAFF affiliates interested in grants for their departments.
