The fire gear equipment grants are included within House Bill (HB) 4437, which was signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and became a Public Act (PA) on August 22, 2023. The full legislative history of the bill can be viewed here.

Section 1007(2) of HB 4437 states that unexpended funds for fire gear equipment grants are designated as a “work project appropriation.”

Under this classification, funds not spent by the end of the fiscal year may be disbursed “until the project has been completed.” The program has a “tentative completion date” of September 30, 2027, suggesting that funds may be expended after 2027 if they are still available.
