The purpose of the FP&S Program is to enhance the safety of the public and firefighters with respect to fire and fire-related hazards by assisting fire prevention programs and supporting firefighter health and safety research and development. FP&S Grants are offered to support projects in the two following activities:

  • Fire Prevention and Safety Activity: FP&S Activities are projects designed to reach high-risk target groups and mitigate the incidence of death and injuries caused by fire and fire-related hazards.  The four project categories eligible for funding under this activity are: Community Risk Reduction (formerly General Education/Awareness); Code Enforcement/Awareness; Fire & Arson Investigation; and National/State/Regional Programs and Studies.
  • Firefighter Safety Research and Development (R&D) Activity: R&D projects are aimed at improving firefighter safety, health, or wellness through research and development that reduces firefighter fatalities and injuries. The five project categories eligible for funding under this activity are: Clinical Studies; Technology and Product Development; Database System Development; Dissemination and Implementation Research; and Preliminary Studies.
