Crisis Grants for Fire & EMS in Pennsylvania

On May 29, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf signed SB1122 into law, now Act 26 of 2020.

The law provides for $44 million dollars in funding to Fire and $6 million in funding for EMS agencies.  Please be aware that the AAP fought to have the language changed and the formula for distribution more fairly dispersed.  Unfortunately, that would have required amending the entire grant program and the legislature wanted to get the funds out quickly.  Amending the statute would have delayed or even denied any funds.

The grant application and additional information will be coming from the Pennsylvania Office of the Fire Commissioner and we will share as soon as it is published.
