2014 AFG Grant Planning

The 2014 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) application period will be opening very soon.  The time to begin preparing your application is NOW!  One of the things you may want to consider is applying for 700 MHz.  After a decade of no progress in true interoperability, recognition is finally being accepted that there is only one interoperable standard approved by both Federal and State plans.

That standard is APCO P25.  Many states, including Mississippi are already in the process of moving to the new Phase 2 capability which will double channel capacity along with other enhanced features.  Open standard trunking and the opportunity to select from multiple vendors is one of the major benefits now available.

With our manufacturing partners, we are ready to assist you in developing an operational and budgetary plan so that YOU will be ready to submit a winning application.  We will be glad to meet with individual departments in Alabama or Mississippi. There is no charge for these services.  For additional information, please give us a call at 800.489.2611 or drop us an email to In the meantime, if you would like to know more about other grants, just click here.
