Dear FireGrantsHelp Member,

In this month’s eNews, Jerry Brant breaks down the AFG's PPE priority list and gives his recommendations for priority definitions that could better fulfill the program's objectives. We're also sharing an article from Samantha Dorm about how her personal COVID-19 experience exemplifies the impact of grants on the fire and EMS response to public health crises.

FEMA has announced the FY20 Assistances to Firefighter Grant (AFG) is now open and will be closing on Friday, February 12 at 5:00 PM ET. If you don’t know where to start, contact FireGrantsHelp for hands-on assistance writing and preparing your AFG application.
