The AFG program provides financial assistance to enhance the health and safety of the public and firefighting personnel and to provide support for emergency responders regarding fire, medical, and all-hazard events. This year's objective is to award grants directly to fire departments, nonaffiliated EMS organizations, and SFTAs for critically needed resources to protect the public, train emergency personnel, foster interoperability, and support community resilience. Eligible activities requested that have an immediate impact on the safety of emergency responders, other personnel, or the public may receive additional consideration during the application review process.
