I got this from Malahat27. He is having issues posting this morning.
Assistance to Firefighters Grant Announcements To Begin
National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg
and other stakeholders participated in a conference call this afternoon
with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Stittleburg has learned
that the first round of Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) awards
will be announced on Friday, October 6. The AFG is a competitive program
administered by the DHS Office of Grants and Training that awards
one-year grants directly to fire departments nationwide in an effort to
give every department the basic tools needed to respond to all hazards.
The first announcement will include 860 awards worth approximately $90
million. Subsequent announcements will be posted on
www.firegrantsupport.com every Friday through the end of the year at
approximately six o'clock in the morning. Overall, approximately 5,000
grants worth $485-490 million will be awarded.
The AFG application solicitation period closed in April, and peer
reviewers from various fire service organizations including the NVFC
evaluated and ranked the 18,160 applications several weeks later.
Normally the first round of award announcements are made in mid to late
summer. This year the award criteria, which by law must be published
before awards can be made, did not appear in the Federal Register until
September. Because the award announcements are starting later than
normal this year, DHS will be making more announcements each week in an
effort to finish the award-making process in a similar time frame as in
years past.I.A.C.O.J. Firefighter/EMT-B
