Fire Prevention & Safety Grants

This section contains eligible category information, grant awards, success stories, and program contacts. The information is for fire departments and eligible organizations interested in reducing death and injuries due to fire related hazards.

Overview

The Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grants are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The primary goal is to reduce injury and prevent death among high-risk populations. In 2005, Congress reauthorized funding for FP&S and expanded the eligible uses of funds to include Firefighter Safety Research and Development.
