After a significant delay, the 2019 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program application period opened on Feb. 3, and will remain open until March 13.
There are several significant changes to this year’s AFG application, and we are here to help you successfully navigate those modifications. The first adjustment you will encounter is the fact that the AFG application is no longer available on your FEMA profile. All your previous AFG, Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (SAFER) and Fire Prevention & Safety (FP&S) grant applications and awards are still available on your profile; however, the online FY 2019 AFG application is only available at the AFG program’s FEMA Grants Outcomes (GO) application portal.
You can only access the 2019 application after you have registered on FEMA GO. I highly recommend that you register now and not wait until the last minute.
Once you register in FEMA GO, your information should be available across all three FEMA grants, and it should auto-populate in future applications.
