May 27, 2015
Press Release
Congressman David E. Price (NC-04), senior Democratic Member and former Chairman of the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, has announced two Fourth District awards from the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG).  Moncure Volunteer Fire Department will receive a $41,667 grant to purchase a new air compressor to fill self-contained breathing apparatus equipment, and the Office of the North Carolina Fire Marshal will receive $173,550 to make improvements to the state fire training school.
 
“I am pleased that these organizations have secured funding to help improve fire and emergency service in the Fourth District,” said Price. “Whether supporting rural fire departments like Moncure FD or state-wide organizations like the North Carolina Fire Marshal’s Office, AFG grants are a critically important resource for first responders.”
 
The AFG Grant Program is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a component of the Department of Homeland Security. These Fourth District grants were appropriated under the Fiscal Year 2014 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill, which Congressman Price negotiated as Ranking Democratic Member.
