AFG E-MAIL ALERT  |  April 9, 2020



The CARES Act authorizes $100M in Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) funds for the purchase of personal protective equipment and related supplies for our nation’s first responders. As fire departments provide lifesaving emergency medical response to more and more communities impacted by COVID-19, FEMA AFG is offering an additional funding opportunity for the fire service community to purchase urgently needed protective equipment and supplies.   

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. FEMA AFG received $100M in stimulus funding under the CARES Act.  
  2. Included in this stimulus is personal protective equipment (PPE) for the COVID-19 response efforts. 
  3. A new AFG application period will be opening soon. 
  4. Please be on the lookout for that announcement which will include additional details.
