    You can ask for up to 3 within 1 app, or 2 in 1 individual and a regional vehicle app. Doesn't mean ask unless each will qualify by themselves, Don has a heck of a situation down there with old fleet disease so itks a heck of a score. Congrats by the way.

    Although it is rare, it can happen and happend to us, and we are a very small department, 34 sq miles, 4200 people, two stations, 250 calls a year. We got two vehicles in AFG2011, odd it was the same combination, a 2000 gallon tanker and a brush truck. Congrats, goes back to the basics of telling the truth and proving the need, again congrats.

    Can you apply for more then 1 FV besides applying for a Operations AFG?

    How about a Regional Operations Application can you also apply individually on a FV or FO?

    You can apply for up to 3 trucks within your individual Vehicle application.

    Then you can apply for a regional Vehicle also which will be limited to: aerial, rescue, air/light, hazmat, command, etc. Basically anything except tanker, pumper, and brush truck. For 2013 there was an issue with having the Regional Vehicle and Individual Vehicle under the same login so we recommended creating another one just for the regional vehicle.

    You can then also host an Operations grant and Regional grant.

    Under each login you can have the 3 applications: FO, FV, FR. But you can also participate in as many regional applications as you'd be competitive for as long as others host them. Each app stands on it's own legs. We had one department host a regional and be in 2 others, all 3 funded plus their FO.

    So in 2014 we can host a FR Regional Radio and still apply for a FO for Hose and a Aerial as either FV or another Regional? Guess I will have more typing and planning to do. Thank you.

    That is correct - start planning! You can do all three as long as you do not duplicate your request in any of the other applications.

    (i.e. portable radios in FO and portable radios in FR)

    Unless they change the app code Regional Vehicles are also FV, the only difference in 2013 was marking Regional benefit and entering all the contact info for all agencies you were including in the stats. Maybe they will make an FT or something to differentiate the individual vs regional vehicle apps for 2014.

    Which is why Sly said start now, 2013s call numbers are done with, no reason not to be ready for August.

    For the 2013 AFG application, State Fire Training Academy applicants were all given the FZ prefix, whether they applied for Operations, Vehicle(s), or both. It's likely that will happen in the 2014 application for Regional applicants as well - they will have a way to apply for Operations and/or Vehicle(s) and the grant number will have the FR prefix.
    There were several inconsistencies in the 2013 AFG application, but a lot of work is being done on the 2014 AFG application so it will not have similar problems.
    Believed by many to be the best-administered homeland security grant in the country, the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program provides an accessible competitive opportunity for fire departments and non-affiliated EMS agencies across the US to get funding for a wide range of operations and safety, vehicles, and regional communications projects.

    Can anyone tell me how many different classifications of AFG grants that there are, also what each of them stand for? I.e. FO, FA?

    Don't forget for those of us who have been around for too long, the original classification was "FG" for all fire grants; before Fire Prevention was separated, multiple applications by agency were allowed, and the other programs were born.

    Funny SLy, I was thinking the very same thing when I read this post this morning. Guess we are showing our age, or at the very least our depth of experience.

    Thanks for making us all feel old there Sly. Hard to believe 13 years passed since the first app period (all paper apps) and 12 years since hitting the rescue truck that got me started on all this....

    This question goes out to anyone who might be able to provide me with some clues to this mystery.

    I came across a gentleman recently who stated that he was "affiliated" with the AFG program.
    The more we talked, the more I began to wonder just how well affiliated he actually was.

    He stated that the AFG was looking to begin opening up the next application process to 501c3 non or not for profit agencies who perform EMS or related services.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this for me, please...

    Non-affiliated EMS agencies have been able to apply for an AFG grant, whether operated by a municipality or a separate entity operating as a 501 c3, for some time.

    I think whoever you were talking to was not very closely affiliated with the AFG program.

    I had quite a few this morning; again, they are timed in the system and do not correlate to an award.

    I am a rookie at these grants. I received an 1199A update before the first round of course. Now we are on the 3rd round and I still have not received any news for a grant reward. What will I receive first?

    It's anywhere from 2-6 weeks from 1199A to award, so not strange to have not heard yet. Maybe Round 4 is yours. Just make sure all prior award closeouts are done and SAM.gov is complete and current. Just ran another one of those this morning for an expired SAM account that got a phone call from DC. There's no playing, check your SAM accounts to make sure. They expire every year and have to be current to get money.
