On February 2, 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush proposed $500 million for the Fire Act in the fiscal year 2005 budget request, the same amount the administration proposed for fiscal year 2004. The release of the President's budget request is only the first step in the annual federal funding process. In February, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) reported it had received verbal assurances from top officials at the Department of Homeland Security that the program will continue to be managed in the same manner as it has been. The IAFC is actively involved in the budgeting and appropriations process and will continue to keep the membership informed.
