Yesterday the Governor announced his Fiscal Year 2015 budget which included the same level of funding for fire protection grants that was appropriated last year – $9.2 million.
Fire protection grants are awarded to communities who have state buildings that are not on the tax rolls to include state office buildings, universities and prisons.
We expect budget hearings to begin in the next week, and we will continue to push for additional funding for fire protection grants.
