Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants can apply for a SAFER grant online via the DHS "e-grants" application process. The online application can be accessed through the following websites: the USFA Website at www.usfa.fema.gov, or the Website of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program at www.firegrantsupport.com, or accessed directly at https://portal.fema.gov. Potential applicants must be aware that eligibility is contingent upon a stable budget. Grants will not be awarded to a municipality or other recipient whose annual operational budget has been reduced below 80 percent of the average annual funding in the three years prior to the date of application. Each department or organization can submit only one application per application period. Applicants may apply for either the Hiring of Firefighters or for the Recruitment and Retention of Volunteer Firefighters or both on the same application. However, we will evaluate applications that include requests for both activities in their entirety and fund them accordingly, i.e., we will not make a partial award for one of the two activities. It is not necessary to for the applicant to write two separate narratives, however, applicants that are requesting assistance in both activities should be sure to address both activities under each of the applicable narrative elements (see pages 12 and 13 for details regarding the requisite narrative elements). The system will allow one authorized representative of a department to log in and create a username and password for the department. Previous grant applicants for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program or the Fire Prevention and Safety Grants MUST USE THE SAME USERNAME AND PASSWORD THAT WAS USED FOR THEIR PREVIOUS APPLICATIONS. The selection of the authorized representative is at the discretion of each applicant.
