2014 Assistance to Firefighters (AFG) Grants Open Monday

The 2014 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG) opens this Monday, November 3rd, 2014. Applications are due Friday, December 5th at 5:00 PM EST. Full details on the program are available at the AFG Program section on

AFG is a large program that awards competitive discretionary grants comprised of three interconnected component programs – Operations and Safety, Vehicle Acquisition, and Joint/Regional. The purpose of the program is to enhance, through direct financial assistance, the health and safety of firefighting and unaffiliated EMS personnel and to provide a continuum of support for emergency responders regarding fire, medical, and all-hazard events. The objective is to award grants directly to fire departments, non-affiliated EMS organizations, and State Fire Training Academies (SFTAs) for critically needed resources to protect the public, train emergency personnel, foster interoperability, and support community resilience.

For those interested in the program who haven’t already had a chance to attend an official 2014 AFG workshop, you can view the presentation online here.

We are offering three different services for this year’s 2014 AFG Grant:

  1. Full grant narrative writing, completion of the online application, and submission of the full application
  2. Grant narrative writing (only)
  3. Grant narrative editing (only)

The AFG program does allow applicants to include a specified amount for grant writing costs in the application and may reimburse up to that amount as part of an award, if an award is made. If you are interested in discussing our services, please contact us via email: or fill out our online submission form here.

Best of luck to all 2014 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Applicants!
