Have Last-Minute Questions or Problems?

If you have last-minute questions about applying for a FP&S grant, or are having technical problems with the electronic application, call the Help Desk at 1-866-274-0960 or send an e-mail to firegrants@fema.dhs.gov. The Help Desk staff will be on hand to help applicants through the end of the application period.

  • Having computer or technical problems? Problems such as expired passwords, technical malfunctions, or loss of internet access, will not be accepted as excuses for late submissions. If you are having a technical problem with submitting your application, you must report the problem to the Help Desk before the application deadline of 5 p.m. EDT.
  • Formal submission of the completed application is required. Many applications appear to be nearly complete or are 100 percent complete but have not been submitted formally into the electronic e-Grant application system. No application will be processed automatically or considered for funding unless the applicant properly submits the request and receives a subsequent e-mail confirmation.
  • No confirmation e-mail received? If you have submitted your application but not yet received an e-mail confirmation in your e-Grant application mailbox, contact the Help Desk at once at 1-866-274-0960. All applicants should receive an e-mail confirmation to document their submissions.
