Delloso lauds $4.5M grant to reinforce Delaware County 911 system

HARRISBURG, Dec. 6 – State Rep. David Delloso, D-Delaware, applauded a $4,561,000 grant for continued improvements to Delaware County’s 911 system.

The funds were awarded through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

“Effective communication with citizens and first responders is key in responding to emergencies where every second matters,” said Delloso. “This money will bring substantial improvements to the county’s 911 system and help the citizens of Delaware County receive timely help in times of crisis.”

Delloso says the grant includes upgrades to 24 communication towers to strengthen communication county-wide, electrical, HVAC and new 911 call center equipment for improved communication with first responders and with surrounding counties. 

This award supplements a $1.5 million RACP grant received by Delaware County in 2020. Delloso says today’s grant helps the county further the 911 system improvement project and continue to invest in the safety of more than half a million Delaware County residents. 

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is a grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects around Pennsylvania.
