Lamont McClure and the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) announce that the County of Northampton will begin accepting applications for 2021 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) grants on January 29th. EMS grants are available to Northampton County volunteer fire departments and non-profit emergency medical service organizations and can be used for capital improvements, vehicle purchase, equipment purchase and training. Eligible organizations can apply for $10,000 per application or project.
“In these most trying of times, we are doing everything we can on the County level to be as supportive of our EMS community as possible,” says Lamont McClure.
The application process opens on Friday, January 29th, and closes on Friday, February 26th. Approvals are scheduled to be announced in March 2021.
Details and applications can be found on the Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) webpage: https://www.northamptoncounty.
The funding for EMS grants comes from the Northampton County’s share of the revenue from table games under the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, 4 PaC.S.A. §§ 1102, et seq. Grants are awarded via a competitive process through a committee consisting of the DCED staff.
