More grants in these categories will be announced in coming weeks.

"More than 19,700 fire departments - volunteer and career - applied for grants this year, submitting requests totaling almost $2.98 billion," said FEMA Director Joe M. Allbaugh. "The President and I hope this program helps to begin addressing the critical needs of our nation’s fire service."

The awards announced today bring the total assistance provided to date to $43.4 million of the $100 million in grants to be distributed by FEMA through Sept. 30. Authorized last year by Congress, the grants will reach rural, urban and suburban fire departments.

The grant applications are being processed by the U.S. Fire Administration and reviewed by representatives from seven fire service organizations. In each case, the federal grants will be supplemented by local funds.

A list of all grant recipients to date is posted on the USFA web site at www.usfa.fema.gov/grants. Future grant recipients will be listed as awards are made.
