    Question Fire Prevention Grants

    Web Team,
    How many Fire Prevention Grants has FEMA received over the last month? Apparently there was not enough applications initially received to spend the $10 Million allocated, so they opened it up for a month and you could apply via paper application, even if you had already been funded or have a application pending! Just wondering!

    Try this:from page 2 may be it will answer your questions.

    Here’s the news on additional prevention grants from last year.
    I believe this is a separate grant program that is available to us
    Check the web site and look at allocations for last year


    SPECIAL PREVENTION GRANTSLEGISLATIVE BKGD | Fed. Register | Selection Criteria | Award Allocations |
    Public Law 106-398, Fire Investment and Response Enhancement (FIRE) Act, Title XVII - Assistance to Firefighters Sec. 1701 Firefighter Assistance The Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1974 (15 U.S.C. 2201 et seq.) was amended to include "FIREFIGHTER ASSISTANCE … and Fire Prevention Programs". Legislation specified that the Director (FEMA) must use at least 5 percent of the available funds to make grants to, or enter into contracts or cooperative agreements with national, state, local, or community organizations. For selection, the recipients must be recognized for their experience and expertise with respect to fire prevention or fire safety programs and activities. In selecting organizations described to receive assistance under this section, priority is given to organizations that focus on the prevention of injuries to children from fire.
