Public fire departments in the U.S. responded to almost 1.3 million fires in the United States in 2014. To help support local firefighting efforts, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), allocated almost $5.8 billion from 2009 to 2016 to award grants to fire departments and other organizations for equipment, staffing, research, and other needs.

The FEMA’s Grant Programs Directorate (GPD) revised fire grant policies for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER), and Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant programs in response to the Fire Grants Reauthorization Act of 2012 (FGRA).
