2015 Update - Assistance to Firefighters Grant


The FEMA Region VII Assistance to Firefighters Grants Team would like to say Happy New Year! and invite you to participate in our 2015 series, “FEMA R7 AFG Informational Forums”. Linda Davis and Rex Jennings, your R7 AFG Program Specialists, will host these forums the third Wednesday of January, February and March, 2015, at 2pm Central Time. These one hour sessions will present timely topics valuable to new, returning, and potential Assistance to Firefighters Grant recipients. We will allow time for discussion on the featured topic, as well as an opportunity to discuss any questions or challenges you have with reference to the AFG program. These forums are your opportunity to gain the most current information on FEMA’s AFG programs to better prepare for, and manage, your AFG Applications and Awards.

The scheduled topics below will be discussed over the next few months. For your convenience, sessions will share the same Adobe Connect webinar link and the same call-in phone number for audio transmission. You should receive a reminder email highlighting the topic of the month. We suggest you save this link to your favorites and add the sessions to your calendar. The webinar link contains a library of featured topics, supportive resources, and Q&A's from previously completed exchange forums.
