It is expected that the 2018 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program will be open for
applications in the fall of 2018.
Each year, prior to the application period, the FEMA Region I Fire Grant Program Specialists travel
throughout New England, providing training workshops relative to the AFG Program. These workshops will
run approx. 2 ½ hours and will provide information on the AFG Program, what is new for the 2018 round, and
tips on how to develop and submit a successful application. These workshops also provide an opportunity for
applicants to ask questions and network with our Grant Specialists and other AFG applicants and recipients.
This year, FEMA Region I will be conducting 24 workshops across the Northeast. 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. Once scheduled, the dates and times will be posted at: https://www.fema.gov/welcomeassistance‐
