Upcoming AFG Technical Assistance Webinar Series – June 2015

FEMA is introducing a new webinar series to assist all Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG) applicants and award recipients with the latest information to help prepare AFG applications and manage awards.  Throughout the year, the new AFG Technical Assistance Webinar Series will be your opportunity to receive a briefing on up-to-date program information directly from AFG experts.  Each webinar will provide ample time for the experts to answer questions from participants.

The first webinar in this series will provide an update on changes in administrative requirements for AFG awards based on the recently adopted Super Circular (2 CFR 200).  This webinar features Mr. Ryan Corle from the FEMA Office of Chief Counsel.    To allow ample time for the presentation, discussion, and questions and answers, two hours has been allotted for each webinar session.

The AFG Technical Assistance Webinar Series will be presented on June 23, 2015 at 11 am and repeated at 3 pm Eastern Time.  

The presentation will include:

  1. Changes in requirements resulting from the implementation by FEMA of the Super Circular.
