Firefighters talking by fire truckAre you looking to apply for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) this year? There are a few things your department should consider before jumping into the application process, so our FEMA grant writers set up a survey (scroll down) to get you thinking before the short, 30-day application window opens this fall.

There is time now to prepare before the solicitation. We've also included tips on how to prepare for AFG—click on the bottommost button for that. You can also sign up here to get more articles from this blog.

Get Registered at SAM.gov

An active registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) is a requirement for receiving an AFG award. To underscore this point, FEMA sent an email reminder in May to subscribers titled "No SAM Registration? No AFG Award!" Clearly this is still an issue. Registration in SAM is free. To register, or validate your information, please visit https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/. Also check out the AFG Awards for 2013.
