Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has opened the application process for the Fiscal Year 2013 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG).  The application period will close on Friday, December 6, 2013.

The grants are available to help fire departments and nonaffiliated Emergency Management Service organizations meet their firefighting and emergency response needs.
