Senate Reauthorizes AFG/SAFER and USFA Grant Programs

The senate recently passed the United States Fire Administration (USFA), Assistance for Firefighters Grant (AFG, also known as the FIRE Grant), and Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Reauthorization Act. This saved the FIRE and SAFER Grant programs from expiring on January 2 and pushes their sunset dates to September 30, 2024. Click here to read about the other benefits of the bill.
