2015 AFG - Application Development Workshop Schedule


It is expected that the 2015 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program will be open for applications in mid-November of 2015.

Each year the FEMA Region VII Fire Grant Program Specialists travel throughout the states of Region VII providing applicant training workshops for the AFG Program. These workshops will run approximately 2 hours and will provide basic information on the AFG Program, discuss changes for 2015, and provide tips for how to develop and submit a more competitive application. These workshops also provide an opportunity for applicants to ask questions and network with our Grant Specialists and other AFG applicants/recipients.

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, as they will be held within or shortly before the 2015 application period later this fall. The schedule for all webinars and workshops, once they are posted, can be located at: There may be workshops located in states adjacent to Region VII that may be more convenient for you, so be sure to check the schedule above for other regions. There is no requirement to register or RSVP for any of these workshops.
