Grant Dollars for IAFF Training and Programs
This session will provide attendees with information on increasing their chances of receiving funding from federal grants. The IAFF Grants Administration Department oversees the IAFF’s national grant programs, which total more than $20 million per year. To assist departments applying for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funding, the IAFF has developed and will present templates for various IAFF programs, including the Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI), the Peer Fitness Trainer (PFT) certification, Peer Support and Fire Ground Survival (FGS) programs. Instructors will also present strategies for seeking and obtaining grant funding at the state level.
