    Assistance to Firefighters Grant Announcements To Begin

    National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg
    and other stakeholders participated in a conference call this afternoon
    with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Stittleburg has learned
    that the first round of Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) awards
    will be announced on Friday, October 6. The AFG is a competitive program
    administered by the DHS Office of Grants and Training that awards
    one-year grants directly to fire departments nationwide in an effort to
    give every department the basic tools needed to respond to all hazards.

    The first announcement will include 860 awards worth approximately $90
    million. Subsequent announcements will be posted on
    www.firegrantsupport.com every Friday through the end of the year at
    approximately six o'clock in the morning. Overall, approximately 5,000
    grants worth $485-490 million will be awarded.

    The AFG application solicitation period closed in April, and peer
    reviewers from various fire service organizations including the NVFC
    evaluated and ranked the 18,160 applications several weeks later.
    Normally the first round of award announcements are made in mid to late
    summer. This year the award criteria, which by law must be published
    before awards can be made, did not appear in the Federal Register until
    September. Because the award announcements are starting later than
    normal this year, DHS will be making more announcements each week in an
    effort to finish the award-making process in a similar time frame as in
    years past.
