Announcement: RELIEF Act of 2021 – MEMA and the Maryland Military Department
The Maryland State Firemen’s Association is excited to share the distribution information for the 181 volunteer departments across Maryland that applied for funding through the RELIEF Act of 2021 to help recover fundraising losses incurred during the 2020 pandemic.
After many months of collecting data from the affected departments by the MSFA and the subsequent petition to the Governor’s office to be included in the RELIEF Act, Senate President Ferguson heard our plea and was successful in adding an amendment to include the original 13 million dollars in losses that was reported to the MSFA.
When the final funding amount of 4 million dollars was announced, all data was then turned over to MEMA and the Maryland Military Department for calculation and distribution.
We thank MEMA and the Maryland Military Department for their hard work in making sure the calculations were fair and equitable.”
Executive Director, MSFA
