Application Period: FY19 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant Available

FEMA states: The Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 SAFER Grant application period is now open and will close on Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. ET. We recommend that you start your application today by reviewing the FY 2019 SAFER Application Technical Assistance Tools. These tools were produced specifically to help potential applicants plan their FY 2019 SAFER applications.

Please make sure that you have thoroughly reviewed the FY 2019 SAFER Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), prior to beginning your application. The SAFER Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) should also be reviewed as they provide more detailed information and explanations. As you begin to develop the narrative portion of your application, the Self-Evaluation tools will be beneficial as the peer reviews will use them when scoring your application. If you are applying for a Recruitment and Retention Activity Grant, the Request Details Description Instructions will be extremely important when completing the application.


The online FY 2019 SAFER Grant Program application is available through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program’s FEMA GO (FEMA Grants Outcomes) application portal at https://go.fema.gov.


All users have their own FEMA GO account. Each account is specific to the authorized user and must not be shared with other personnel. A FEMA GO Account Creation User Guide can be viewed on the AFGP website or downloaded to your computer.


FEMA GO is compatible with Internet Explorer (version 11 or higher), Firefox (version 73 or higher), or Chrome (version 80 or higher). Users who attempt to use tablet type devices or other browsers may encounter issues with using FEMA GO.


SAFER Grants Help Desk: If you have questions about the technical assistance tools listed below, call or e-mail the SAFER Grants help Desk. The toll-free number is 1-866-274-0960; the e-mail address for questions is firegrants@fema.dhs.gov.
