2017 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program FEMA Region I

2017 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program FEMA Region I
Application Development
Workshop Schedule

It is expected that the 2017 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program will be open for applications in the fall of 2017.

Each year, prior to the application period, the FEMA Region I Fire Grant Program Specialists travel throughout New England, providing training workshops relative to the AFG Program. These workshops will run approx. 2 ½ hours and will provide information on the AFG Program, what is new for the 2017 round, and tips on how to develop and submit a successful application. These workshops also provide an opportunity for applicants to ask questions and network with our Grant Specialists and other AFG applicants and recipients.

This year, FEMA Region I will be conducting 30 workshops across the Northeast. The date, time and location of each session is indicated on the schedule below. In addition to these workshops, the Region will also host workshop webinars that can be attended remotely. The schedule for these webinars is yet to be determined. Once scheduled, the dates and times will be posted at:
