Pascrell, Gottheimer Announce $128K Grant for Teaneck First Responders

TEANECK, D.C. – On April 13, 2017, U.S. Representatives Bill Pascrell, Jr. (NJ-09) and Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05) announced that the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a new federal FIRE Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) to the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps in the amount of $128,728.  “I am grateful the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps was awarded this Assistance to Firefighter Grant to ensure they have the tools needed to keep our communities safe," said Rep. Pascrell. 

"This grant funding will enable the brave men and women of the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps to better protect its residents. I'm proud to see the program I began is continuing to deliver to the cities and towns that need it most." 


"For too long, Northern New Jersey has sent our hard-earned resources to Washington and seen very little in return for our federal tax investment, so I am proud to announce this investment in the safety of our first responders right here in Teaneck," said Rep. Gottheimer.

"Our District receives only 33 cents back on every federal tax dollar we pay while moocher states like West Virginia get $4.23. This grant is a step in the right direction to close that gap and keep our first responders safe as they put themselves in harms’ way to protect the health and safety of our families and communities."

"This grant will help the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps better serve our community and keep our families healthy and safe," said Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin.

"I thank Congressmen Gottheimer and Pascrell for their advocacy on behalf of Teaneck and our first responders."

This is round 1 of the competitive FY 2016 announcements for the Department of Homeland Security's AFG Program, which is administered by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration. These grants allow fire departments to purchase or upgrade equipment, vehicles, workplace training, and other firefighting and fire prevention activities.
