DNCR Offers Grants For Firefighting In Rural Areas

DCNR: Funding available to help volunteer firefighters

Sun Gazette

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources said nearly $667,000 in grants is available to help Pennsylvania's rural communities better guard against the threat of fires in forested, undeveloped and unprotected areas.

"Although some areas may still have some snow on the ground, changing weather conditions can quickly usher in wildfire dangers that emphasize the value of having well-trained and well-equipped local firefighting forces in rural areas," said Bureau of Forestry Director Daniel Devlin. "These men and women deserve nothing but the very best training and equipment these grants help achieve."

A total of $666,553 is being made available to Pennsylvania volunteers this year. In 2009, grants totaling $559,200 helped almost 200 fire companies across the state.

The grant program has awarded more than $8.1 million since it began in 1982.

The rest of the story. A fire comapny may only request up to $7,500 and that is a 60% 40% match grant. If you use the entire $7,500 you can not apply again for 5 years. If you didn't use the entire $,7500 you can apply in the next year for the balance. Then you must wait 5 years to apply again.
