HARRISBURG, PA – The state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) has awarded a $900,000 grant to the City of DuBois for the construction of a new fire station said Rep. Mike Armanini (R-Clearfield/Elk).

“Protecting citizens, their families and their homes is the first priority of government,” said Armanini, who supported the grant application. “This grant will help ensure the City of DuBois has the facility it needs in order that our firefighters and first responders can be there when called.”

The DuBois/Sandy Township Joint Fire Board recently announced plans to build a new, larger fire station to serve as the firefighting headquarters in the city of DuBois. The grant will be used to fund land acquisition for the project and the construction of a state- of-the-art fire station complete with meeting rooms, bunk rooms, day facilities, apparatus bays and a training room.

RACP is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity.

“As the City of DuBois and Sandy Township move forward with their plans to consolidate, I’m pleased to have helped secure this grant,” said Armanini. “I’m gratified the administration saw its value to the safety and protection of residents, families and their property.”
