The 2019 AFG application period will open at 8AM Monday, February 3, 2018 and will close on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 5PM EST

Regarding training in the 2019 AFG program and Action Training Systems (ATS) training materials

  • AFG will fund online training materials
    So, whichever fits your department training the best, Action Training Online Courses or DVDs, either format is fundable

  • AFG Micro Grants
    If you have a project that requires a federal share of less than $50,000, this category of funding deserves a long and hard look.

From the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)

Micro Grants: The selection of the voluntary Micro Grant option (cumulative federal funding of $50,000) for eligible Operations and Safety activities does not impact an applicant’s request or federal participation under the Vehicle Acquisition or Regional projects. Applicants who select Micro Grants under Operations and Safety as a funding opportunity choice may still apply for a Vehicle Acquisition or Regional project.


  • ATS has some great online training options that come in under the $50K threshold and line up with grant priorities
      • Fire Department, Regional, and State Fire Training Academy Training Priorities - Highest Priority:
        • Training consistent with national or state standards
        • Training that brings a department into compliance with recommended NFPA or other national standards
          ATS courses teach to current NFPA standards
        • Instructor-led training that requires student testing to demonstrate academic competence or practical proficiency
          ATS courses are designed to be used as part of a program of instruction overseen by a certified instructor
        • Training that benefits the highest percentage of applicable personnel, such as the hazardous materials training within a fire department or training that will be open to other eligible organizations
