AFG Vehicle Grants - Assistance to Firefighters Grant

Each year, the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program provides fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service providers with grants, to buy new emergency response vehicles to replace unsafe apparatus. The primary purpose of these grants is to improve the safety of both the public and firefighters. Safer vehicles, designed to meet current national standards, helps to improve the ability of firefighters to protect their communities. Since the AFG Program started in 2001, we have awarded more than 4,300 grants to help fire departments, with few resources, replace unsafe emergency vehicles and remove them from service, permanently.
