Stimulus bill: $210 million for fire station construction

The Stimulus bill that President Obama will sign on Monday Tuesday includes $210 million for the construction of fire stations. The funds can be used for modifying, upgrading or constructing non-Federal fire stations, not to exceed $15 million per grant. The legislation also waives the cost-share provisions for 2009 and 2010 that have been in place for some earlier grants.

Yesterday we detailed the $515 million in the bill that is designated for wildland fire management.
