The FY 2023 AFG Application Period

This grant opens on January 29th, 2024, and closes on March 8th, 2024 at 5 pm Eastern Time.




Action Training Systems training materials are eligible under the FY 2023 AFG program.

  • AFG will fund online training materials
    So, whichever fits your department training the best, Action Training Online Courses, USB, and DVDs are 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.
