Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grants

FP&S Grants Overview
The Fire Prevention and Safety Grants (FP&S) are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and are under the purview of the Grant Programs Directorate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FP&S grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The primary goal is to target high-risk populations and mitigate high incidences of death and injury. Examples of the types of projects supported by FP&S include fire prevention and public safety education campaigns, juvenile firesetter interventions, media campaigns, and arson prevention and awareness programs. In fiscal year 2005, Congress reauthorized funding for FP&S and expanded the eligible uses of funds to include Firefighter Safety Research and Development.

  • How do I gain access to my department's previous year's application when I'm going to be the primary contact on the new application and I don't know the user name and password from the previous year's application (i.e., lost password, previous contact is no longer available)?

    Please note: This information can only be changed by authorized personnel.

    Send us a letter explaining the need to change the main contact information. The letter must be on fire department letterhead and signed by the Chief of the department. To expedite this change you can fax a copy of the letter to Mr. William Dunham at 866-274-0942. The letter should be addressed to:

    U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA
    William Dunham - Room 5066D - Techworld Bldg.
    500 C St SW
    Washington, DC 20472

    The following information must be included in the letter:

    - Grant Number
    - Previous Main Contact Person's Name
    - Explanation of why access to the grant is needed
    - New Contact Person's Name
    - New Contact Person's Mother's Maiden Name
    - Date of Birth
    - E-mail Address
    - Two Phone Numbers

    Soon after faxing the letter to Mr. Dunham you will receive an email from us with your temporary password. If you do not receive this email within two days of faxing your request, look in your Junk Mail file. The electronic emails are sometimes filtered and sent directly to junk mail.

    If that does not work, go onto the web site at www.firegrantsupport.com and choose e-grant application. You will get an application sign-in screen. Click on “FORGOT PASSWORD” and answer the two security questions and submit your request. The screen should tell you that you successfully submitted your request and that a temporary password is being emailed to your address. Go into your email and retrieve the temporary password. Again, if the message is not there, look in the junk mail file if it is not in your email box.

    When you click on submit and the computer tells you that you gave incorrect information you need to call Mr. Dunham at (202) 786-9813.
