Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: January 23, 2024 03:21 PM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano
To: All Senate members
Subject: Fire & EMS Grant Reauthorization
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to reauthorize the Fire & EMS Grant Program, which is due to expire on June 30, 2024.
Currently, the program provides $30 million to fire companies and EMS agencies.  Fire companies are eligible for up to $20,000 and EMS agencies can receive up to $15,000. 
My bill would reauthorize the program for 10 years - repeal outdated language (like the expired COVID Grants) - re-purpose the Firefighter 1 incentive (which is difficult to determine which fire company should receive credit for firefighters that serve in multiple companies) - and make other minor changes. 
Please join me in support of our Fire & EMS community by extending this popular and needed program.  

Introduced as SB1099
