FEMA EXTENDS APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR ASSISTANCE TO FIREFIGHTERS GRANT PROGRAM

 September 13, 2011

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is announcing that the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) application period will be extended one additional week. The NEW deadline for AFG applications is September 23, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

The earthquake that affected so many communities in the eastern United States, as well as the continued responses related to hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and the active wildfires in southwestern United States have had a direct impact on organizations’ ability to prepare and apply for grant assistance under the AFG program.

We hope this extension will provide valuable time required to complete and submit your application. The AFG Program Help Desk is ready to assist with any questions applicants may have and can be reached by calling 1-866-274-0960 or by email at firegrants@dhs.gov.
