Can't find in the PG if a back-up power generator on a new construction is an eligible item....
Anyone have a guess?

I am putting it on our app. The program guidance, p.19 shows power source in project. I am thinking that means back up generator.

Under ineligible expenses, it says that any projects that duplicate any other Federal awards are ineligible. I thought Generator were AFG items; or do they mean portable generators? I haven't applied for one so not sure. May want to do a little more research on it. Worst case...they will make you pay for it without gov't $.

What they mean is that anything that duplicates an award you already got is ineligible. So if you already got sprinklers, an exhaust system, or alarm system already installed into a structure that you're renovating/expanding then they won't pay for any related work on those 3 things.
If you're replacing a station the expectation is that any generators or exhaust systems get moved to the new one if they were grant awards.
And they're also looking at USDA/HUD awards as well for building projects so these funds can't supplement awards from them.
Backup generators are eligible but only to the size that they'll run just the fire station, not the fire station and attached city hall, police station, etc. So 200kW is probably over the top for most stations, 50-75kW depending on HVAC demands is probably the right range.
