Nine Rhode Island communities were awarded grants to help pay for significant public safety facility infrastructure projects, Gov. Dan McKee said Monday. The awards are part of a matching grant program that was funded with $11 million in State Fiscal Recovery Funds (SFRF) through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The maximum award amount is $5 million for regional projects and $1 million for local projects. "Investing in Rhode Island's public safety starts by addressing the infrastructure that police, fire and EMS units need to protect our state," McKee said. "I'm grateful to our partners in the Rhode Island General Assembly and the federal government for recognizing the importance of funding these local projects, so that we can support the brave men and women who keep Rhode Islanders safe."
