FEMA fire grants: FY 2021 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program Turndown Webinars

Applied for AFG? If you haven’t gotten an award yet, you may be getting something else: a turndown letter, also known as a “dear John letter.” Here are details from FEMA on the latest webinars about turndown letters:

Turndown Notifications Status

To date, turndown notifications for FY 21 AFG Grant applications have not yet been sent. The first wave of turndown notifications for FY 21 AFG Grant applications are anticipated to roll out through FEMA GO within the week. While departments that do not receive a turndown notification remain in consideration for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, this does not guarantee award. Therefore, if your department has not received an award offer, you are encouraged to attend one of the below FY 21 AFG Turndown Webinars.

FY 2021 AFG Turndown Webinars Start December 19, 2022!

Beginning on Monday, Dec. 19 at 10 a.m. ET, FEMA will host a series of live Adobe Connect webinars. The webinars are designed for fire and non-affiliated Emergency Medical Services organizations that received a turndown notice for their Fiscal Year 2021 Assistance to Firefighters Grants application. Applicants are encouraged to have their application available for review during the webinar session. Please see the schedule below for webinar dates and times.
