The S.C. Fire Academy offers two primary types of grant programs to Public Fire students. These include:

Emergency Management Division (EMD) - HMEP Grants

These classes are hazardous materials based federally funded programs that the S.C. Emergency Management Division allows the SCFA to deliver. These classes are free to public fire, EMS, police, and other recognized emergency first responders. These grant classes are determined and published to begin January 1 of each year, and must be completed by September 30 of the same year. Local EMD offices request this training.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) State Training Grant

These classes are provided through a grant offered to the S.C. Fire Academy, and are specific to National Fire Academy direct delivery or handoff classes. These classes require the completion of an SCFA (either electronic or written) and a National Fire Academy registration form.

Grant classes are listed on the Fire Portal. For additional information, contact your Regional Coordinator.
