Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program Expected to Launch with New System
Monday, July 29, 2019 | Comments

The federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) is projected to open in the coming weeks, according to a blog from BK Technologies. The goal of this grant is to provide firefighters and first responders with updated equipment, gear, radios, training and emergency vehicles to better protect themselves and the community.

The AFG meets the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and non-affiliated EMS organizations. The AFG assists more than 2,000 fire departments nationwide each year, with grants reaching more than $3 million for personal protective equipment, and gear that may be otherwise unattainable by its recipients.

The AFG will launch the new Grant Outcomes (GO) system for its 2019 application. This new system is meant to streamline the application process with a more user-friendly interface.

The 2019 cycle is projected to begin in the late summer or early fall.

“We encourage all of our partners in fire and public safety to assess the needs of their department, obtain estimates and apply for this opportunity to enhance their fleet of equipment to better protect the public while keeping themselves safe,” BK Technologies said in the blog.
