Grants to USA nonprofit, tribal, and for-profit organizations for programs that address the needs of families of public safety workers who have suffered death or injury. Funding is intended to support the families of law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders who have lost their lives or suffered from catastrophic injuries while serving the country.
Funding is intended to provide death, disability, and education benefits to those eligible for the program. This collaboration relies heavily on the ability of the PSOB Office to work with national stakeholders to maintain and enhance a wide range of effective survivor resources, including national peer support and counseling programs, which assist the families of public safety officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
The goal of this initiative is to provide survivor peer support and counseling services and resources to survivors of fallen law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders nationwide. For more details, see:
