I don't know about you, but nothing makes me happier when I realize that the application period for the Fire Prevention and Safety Grants is near.
According to an email blast from FEMA that was just sent out, it's anticipated that the application period for the 2011 FP&S grants will be held early Spring 2012.
Part of what can help make a grant be successful, is to BE PREPARED. If you haven't done so already, NOW IS THE TIME to start preparing to submit your application in the Spring! One of the ways in which to do this is to watch the new video on the FP&S Grants program that has been introduced on the AFG website. What's nice about this video is that it provides insight into the funding priorities for the grants and describes the requirements and the process for applying.
I was about beside myself after watching this video. Thanks to FEMA for providing this visual tutorial. It was very helpful!
Soak up this information like a sponge and I'll do my best to provide you with the latest information as the process for the grants goes along.
If you would like to receive email updates, go to the Assistance to Firefighter's Grant homepage. At the very top of the page on the right hand side just below the social network icons, you will see a very small link that says, "Email updates for this page." Click on that sign up and you will start receiving the lates information.
Hope you find this information useful and until next time, stay safe!
