    From the DHS e-mail:

    The Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) is a competitive grant opportunity for local fire departments and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) organizations that are not affiliated with a hospital. The AFG funds activities such as purchasing firefighting equipment, personal protection equipment, training, firefighting vehicles, and firefighter/first responder safety projects.

    Each year the AFG regional staff conducts hundreds of workshops nationwide to provide up to date program information to applicants. On Wednesday, January 18, 2006 the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG) will begin posting the FY 2006 AFG workshop schedule on its website: www.firegrantsupport.com. The workshops are scheduled and conducted by AFG regional representatives and offer current program information for any fire and/or EMS organization that wishes to submit a 2006 AFG application.

    There is no admittance charge to any AFG workshop. The schedule will
    provide the locations, dates, times and points of contact for each workshop. If you are unable to attend a workshop offered in your area, the program office will also be providing on the AFG website an electronic copy of the PowerPoint presentation used at the workshops. In addition, by mid-February, the applicant tutorial, the FY 2006 AFG Program Guidance, and a list of FAQ's will be available on the website.

    During the application period, there will be an expanded help desk at
    1-866-274-0960 and at FIREGRANTS@DHS.GOV.

    Thank you for your continued interest in the AFG program and best of luck in the upcoming application period.
