FEMA Announces New Grant File Documentation and Record Keeping Tool

On October 16, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Grant Programs Directorate announced the launch of a new Grants Management Digital Resource Center to provide information and resources to support the grants management lifecycle. The Resource Center includes tools for fire and EMS departments that receive funding through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Funding and Emergency Response (SAFER), and/or Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) grant programs.

Tools have been created in the Resource Center to highlight documentation management and retention practices, include a grant file management guide, an organizational template, and a checklist. For any questions, contact FEMA-GPD-Training@fema.dhs.gov.
