Five Alarm Alert: Fire Grants Program Moves to New Website

March 29, 2011 | By Liza Casabona | Post a Comment

Spring cleaning has begun, and it’s starting at the virtual firehouse first.  This Friday the website for firefighter grants will move to a new online home. Starting April 1, the Assistance to Firefighters Grants Program will be at

Applications for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program, the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grants, Fire Prevention and Safety Grants and information about the Firefighters Station Construction Grants will all be at the new site.

The site will house all materials and information related to the fire grants program, including award announcements, grants management workshops, program application reports, success stories and statistics—all the information that has been found to date at

According to the announcement of the switch, the new site will be more user-friendly and easier to access for first responders.

Although the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Programs have always been part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the move will streamline the web portals that grantseekers and recipients use to access program information into a single location.

Program information is still at the old site and until Friday the new URL only brings up a “coming soon” banner, but after April 1 the new page through FEMA’s site will be the program’s primary access point online.
