FY 2017 Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grant Application

Period Opens February 12 – March 16

Visit the FEMA Homepage



The Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant provides funding for projects associated with reducing the number of fire-related deaths and injuries, especially among those in high-risk populations such as children and older adults. The United States Fire Administration (USFA) developed the “Fire is Everyone’s Fight” initiative in an effort to support that goal and to change how people think about fire prevention.

FEMA encourages applicants to utilize the steps listed in “Public Fire Education Planning, a Five-Step Process“, designed by the USFA, as a guide to developing a comprehensive life and fire safety program.
