Delco Council Authorizes $1.75M for First Responders

Delaware County Public Information Office

Delaware County Council has authorized up to $1,750,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funds for grants to local fire departments across the county. More than 60 active fire companies are eligible for grants up to $25,000 for their operational needs. 

The funds are designed to replace lost revenues and supplement fund-raising efforts adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Emergency Services Director Timothy Boyce said, “These new grants authorized by Council will allow them to focus on providing essential services and protecting our community.” Boyce recently met with the County’s Fire Service Leadership to go over details of the grant process.
