Glens Falls, N.Y. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) announced that her office is sponsoring several FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Workshops in New York’s 21st Congressional District. The AFG Program was created to enhance the ability of first responders to protect the health and safety of the public from fire and related hazards. Any fire department, non-affiliated Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agency, or State Fire Training Academy can apply.

“My offices are pleased to serve our North Country community, and one important way we can help is by assisting with the federal grants process,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Securing federal funding can be an arduous and complicated task, and these workshops will provide tools, additional information and guidance to help make our fire departments and EMS agencies as competitive as possible. In New York’s 21st district, we are grateful for our brave first responders and I am pleased that my office will be providing this valuable service.”
