The CORONOVIRUS AID, RELIEF, and ECONOMIC SECURITY (CARES) ACT ANNOUNCEMENT:
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.

Here’s what you need to know:
- FEMA AFG received $100M in stimulus funding under the CARES Act.
- Included in this stimulus is personal protective equipment (PPE) for the COVID-19 response efforts.
