The 2012 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program, which will shell out $285 million to fire and rescue agencies around the country, opened on June 11.
On this podcast, veteran grant writer Brian Vickers explains the grant process and how peer reviewers examine the applications. He shares tips on how submitters can increase their chances of receiving the federal funds.
Vickers looks at changes made to the value of call volumes, training and other areas of the process. He also discusses why some apparatus, building modification and equipment priorities have changed.
Because this year's appropriations are lower than past years, it's important that you listen as he share time-proven advice. The application period closes on July 6.
