Fire Prevention and Safety Grants period to open soon
Projects supported by Fire Prevention and Safety grants often align with the types of activities performed by Fire Corps programs.
The FY 2010 Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grant application period will open soon, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Grant Programs Directorate has released a Get Ready Guide to help departments start prepping their grant applications. FP&S Grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. Fire Corps members can help their department secure funding through FP&S for department and Fire Corps activities.
The Get Ready Guide goes over the three most heavily weighed areas of the evaluation criteria vulnerability, implementation, and evaluation and asks questions designed to help departments formulate comprehensive answers on their application. It is important to start the application planning process now to ensure your application is the best it can be.
FP&S is part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants program and is under the purview of the Grants Program Directorate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency of the Department of Homeland Security. Projects supported by FP&S grants often align with the types of activities performed by Fire Corps programs. Examples include fire prevention and public safety education campaigns, juvenile firesetter interventions, media campaigns, and arson prevention and awareness programs, as well as firefighter health and safety initiatives, which Fire Corps members can help implement in their department. The funds can also be used for firefighter safety research and development.
