The application period for the 2017 Fire Prevention & Safety (FP&S) Grants will open on February 12, 2018 and will close March 16, 2018. Now is the time to begin preparing your application!
The purpose of the FP&S Grant Program is to enhance the safety of the public and firefighters with respect to fire and fire-related hazards by assisting fire prevention programs and supporting firefighter health and safety research and development. FP&S Grants are offered to support projects in two activities:
- Fire Prevention and Safety Activity: designed to reach high-risk target groups and mitigate the incidence of death, injuries, and property
damage caused by fire and fire-related hazards.
- Firefighter Safety Research and Development (R&D): aimed at improving firefighter safety, health, or wellness through research and development that reduces firefighter fatalities and injuries.
