Relief Association Funding
I am proposing a new funding model for Volunteer Firefighters' Relief Associations. I am stating that there needs to be a minimum amount of funding that an association should receive so that they can meet the goals and objectives as set forth in subsection 7413 of Act 205 of 1984.
I am proposing that the minimum amount that an association be funded is $10,000. In 2009 (latest date Auditor General has information posted) there were over 200 associations receiving less than this amount. What I am proposing is that $10,000 be given to each association. The remainder of the funding is then split using the existing formula based on population and real estate value.
