Check Out the NVFC’s New FEMA GO Frequently Asked Questions Resource

The Federal Emergency Management Agency Grants Outcomes (FEMA GO) is the new grants management system that will support FEMA grant programs. The system is designed to allow users to apply, track, and manage all disaster and non-disaster grants.

The Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant, and Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant programs were the first to transition to using FEMA GO. The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has received a number of questions from members related to issues they are experiencing with the new system. In response, the NVFC worked with FEMA to develop answers to frequently asked questions. Click here to access the NVFC’s FEMA GO FAQ resource.

On September 2 at 2pm ET, the NVFC will host a free webinar to provide program updates related to the AFG, SAFER, and FP&S grants. NVFC Maryland director David Lewis will cover topics including the new FAQ resource, FEMA’s decision to extend the period of performance for FY 2018 AFG and other grants, and the recent announcement by FEMA of a second AFG-S application period for volunteer and combination fire departments to apply for funding to purchase personal protective equipment and other supplies to support COVID-19 response.
