    Apply Now: FEMA accepting applications for $100 million in COVID-19 supplemental assistance for local fire departments

    On April 28, the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the opening of the application period for $100 million in FY 2020 Assistance to Firefighters Grant – COVID-19 Supplemental Program (AFG-S), included under the recently passed Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act (P.L. 116-136). The deadline to apply is May 15, 2020.

    Counties are responsible for the continued operation of many essential public safety services during the COVID-19 response, including local fire and rescue. These funds will allow eligible local fire departments, nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations (NAEMS) and state fire training academies (SFTAs) to purchase PPE for front line first responders.

    The application for the AFG-S can be found here. Additional information on eligibility, application materials and FEMA contact information can be found on the FEMA grants page.
