Benninghoff Announces Local Fire, Ambulance Grants
HARRISBURG – Fire and emergency response organizations in the 171st Legislative District have been awarded more than $170,000 in state grants, Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) announced today.

“I am fully supportive of a grant program that provides financial support to organizations that make it their mission to protect the public,” Benninghoff said. “I am grateful for their willingness to serve their communities with such bravery and sacrifice.”

The funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not general fund tax revenue.
