Leesburg, Va., Aug. 22, 2012 -- In a temporary file room at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, Va, approximately 8,000 grant applications await review by the more than 300 subject matter experts who have been assembled to conduct peer review evaluations for FEMA's fiscal year 2012 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) and Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant programs. The peer reviewers, who are volunteers from fire departments and non-affiliated emergency medical services organizations across the country, evaluate and score the applications, providing FEMA with award recommendations.
