FM Global Fire Prevention Grant Program

Because we believe that the majority of fire can be prevented, FM Global is pleased to offer financial support to organizations working to combat fire. Through our new Fire Prevention Grant Program, fire departments and brigades, as well as national, state, regional, local and community organizations can apply for funding to support a wide array of fire prevention, preparedness and control efforts, including prefire planning, fire prevention education/training and arson prevention/fire investigation.

Who is eligible?
Any organization or agency around the world that supports fire prevention can apply for an FM Global Fire Prevention Grant; however, funds must be used for public purposes. Additional terms and conditions may apply for applicants based in the United States, Canada and other countries.

What can I apply for?
Funding requests will be considered to help support organizations working to combat fire for a wide array of fire prevention, preparedness and control efforts. Here are some examples to use as a guide:

  • Pre-Incident Planning (computer software programs, laptops)
  • Fire Prevention Education/Training (community outreach initiatives, workshops, publications)
  • Arson Prevention/Fire Investigation (juvenile fire setter programs, continuing education courses, digital and specialized cameras, accelerant detection equipment)

Deadlines for submitting your application:
Grant applications are reviewed three times per year. Deadlines for receipt of applications are March 31, July 31 and November 30. Decisions on awards are made approximately 3 - 4 months after deadline.
