 Shirley Fire Dept. to Receive Grant Money

March 4, 2009 - U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar was notified today that the Shirley Volunteer Fire Department in Shirley, Indiana will receive a $20,216 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG).

AFG funds are utilized by the nation’s firefighters to increase the effectiveness of firefighting and emergency response operations, and to improve firefighter health and safety programs.

In Fiscal Year 2008 AFG was administered by FEMA’s Grant Programs Directorate in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration. The AFG Program provides grants on a competitive basis to rural, urban and suburban fire departments throughout the United States.

Fire departments with questions about the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program may reach the fire grants help desk toll free at 1-866-274-0960 or firegrants@dhs.gov. For the most current information regarding the AFGP, visit www.firegrantsupport.com.

Questions regarding the application process may be directed to Andrew Mills, Grants Coordinator, by phone at 202-224-4814 or by email at grants@lugar.senate.gov.
