FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 27, 2004

Governor distributes grants to 110 counties and cities
$2.8 million grant earmarked for all-hazard emergency plans

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich today announced that 110 counties and cities will receive grants totaling $2.8 million from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) to assist them with their comprehensive all-hazards emergency operations plans.
 
“Emergency operations plans drive response to any emergency, whether it be a tornado, flood or terrorist attack,” Blagojevich said. “That’s why it’s critical that these local responses agencies have the resources needed to develop and maintain their plans.
 
The Emergency Management Assistance grants are awarded to local emergency management and emergency services and disaster agencies that meet IEMA accreditation requirements and apply for reimbursement of eligible expenses. Grant funds can be used for such expenses as administrative salaries, office operations and emergency planning-related travel. Agencies receiving the grants must provide 50% matching funds.
 
“Every accredited emergency services and disaster agency in Illinois is required to have a disaster plan, which takes time, staff and space” said William C. Burke, IEMA director. “These grants help ease the burden of these expenses for the local agencies.”
 
Funding for the Emergency Management Assistance grants is supported by a federal Emergency Management Performance Grant to IEMA.
 
Following is a list of the locations to recieve grants and the amounts.
