If a lack of funding is preventing you from getting a crucial safety message out to the public, NFPA can help. But you must act quickly.

Here's your chance to secure up to $10,000 through NFPA's Bringing Safety Home Grant, which funds localized advocacy and educational efforts in support of home fire sprinklers. Why fire sprinklers? NFPA research confirms these devices can save lives in the place where people are dying most from fire.

Consider how some of the 2015 grant recipients used these funds, and create (or mimic) something similar in your region:

  • The Missouri Fire Sprinkler Coalition initiated a public campaign in support of sprinklers, utilizing social media, PSAs, and e-mail blasts
  • the Connecticut and Michigan Fire Sprinkler Coalitions launched local sprinkler summits, bringing parties either misinformed or uninformed about sprinklers to the same table
  • the South Carolina and Utah Fire Sprinkler Coalitions are wowing crowds with their new fire sprinkler demonstration trailers, made possible by the grant

NFPA is accepting applications through March 16, 2016. Please don't delay--apply today. (The application process is simple.) You have the power to solve North America's home fire problem.
