FM Global supports organizations working to combat harmful fire events. Through the 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 pre-fire planning, fire prevention education and training, and arson prevention and fire investigation.

Some examples of past efforts supported include:

•Computer software programs and laptops for pre-incident planning

•Community outreach initiatives, workshops, and publications for fire prevention

•Juvenile fire setter programs, continuing education courses, digital and specialized cameras, and accelerant detection equipment for arson prevention and fire investigation

Funding requests for salaries, motor–powered vehicles (fire apparatus, automobiles, and off-road vehicles), building projects, and equipment or training related to fire suppression, for example, will not be considered. In addition, service contracts on equipment and software, equipment for incidents related to hazardous material, carbon monoxide detectors and CPR equipment/training do not fall within the scope of the fire prevention grant program.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified. Although there is no limit on how much funding an organization can apply for, this grant program is designed to provide seed money to help support fire prevention, preparedness, and control efforts.

Eligibility: Applicants must be a governmental unit of a city, town, county, state, commonwealth, the District of Columbia, possession of the United States, the United States itself or any political subdivision as described in Section 170(b)(1)(A)(v) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code, or a 501(c)(3) or (4) tax-exempt organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code.

The Brady Education Foundation is now accepting applications for two types of education projects for underserved youth. These education projects include program development and program evaluation:

1.Program Development: These projects develop and test the feasibility of new programs for promoting positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (minority ethnic groups, low-income families). For this type of project the Foundation favors projects that:

 

  • Represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers and practitioners, and other community stakeholders as appropriate, and where the community/population being studied is represented in the project's leadership team;
  • Develop programs consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models;
  • Leverage other funding;
  • Develop programs that, in addition to showing promise of being effective, show promise of being affordable, accessible and sustainable.
  • Consider the specific and unique assets and needs of children from underserved populations and/or low-resourced communities (e.g., minority ethnic groups, low- income communities). Concerning race and ethnicity, the Foundation seeks to increase understanding of what works best for children from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds (e.g., African American, Latino, Native American).

 

2.Existing Program Evaluation: These projects evaluate the effectiveness of programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (minority ethnic groups, low-income families). For this type of project, the Foundation favors projects that:

 

  • Represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers and practitioners, and other community stakeholders as appropriate, and where the community/population being studied is represented in the project's leadership team;
  • Evaluate programs consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models;
  • Projects for which operational funding for the program is already secured so that funding from the Foundation is used only for evaluation activities;
  • Evaluate programs that show promise of being affordable, accessible and sustainable;
  • Projects that employ randomized control designs (including wait-list control designs when assignment to the wait-list condition is randomized). Comparison group designs may also be employed when strong efforts are made to control for potential confounding variables (e.g., due to selection effects). The Foundation rarely funds evaluation projects that employ neither randomized control nor comparison group designs;
  • Projects that evaluate effects on measurable child outcomes.
  • Consider the specific and unique assets and needs of children from underserved populations and/or low-resourced communities (e.g., minority ethnic groups, low- income communities). Concerning race and ethnicity, the Foundation seeks to increase understanding of what works best for children from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds (e.g., African American, Latino, Native American).

 

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations only. The foundation will not fund scholarships, capital projects, projects outside of the United States, evaluations conducted by for- profit organizations or the development of programs intended to become for-profit entities, program development and evaluation for children at risk for poor cognitive and academic outcomes due to medical conditions (including developmental delays or disabilities associated with biological causes) or substance abuse, scaling up programs already found to be effective nor for continuing education for providers.
