Berry Encourages First Responders to Apply for DHS Equipment Grants

AUGUST 16, 2006 - Posted at 4:11 p.m. CDT

 

WASHINGTON - First District Congressman Marion Berry announced this afternoon that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is seeking applications for the fiscal year 2006 Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program (CEDAP).  The program will award more than $32 million in equipment for first responders in rural communities not eligible for funding through the Department's Urban Areas Security Initiative grant program.  The application period officially opened today and will close on September 15, 2006.

"The only way to defeat terrorism in the United States is to make sure every community is prepared regardless of whether it lies in an urban or rural area," said Berry.  "The CEDAP program gives our rural first responders an opportunity to apply for the equipment and technology critical to improving emergency response and overall preparedness."
