Boucher announces Ninth District eligible for funds

Washington, D.C. – As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act approved by Congress, the U.S. Department of Justice has made available nearly $1 million in Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grants to 27 localities across the Ninth Congressional District.
According to Congressman Rick Boucher, the grants support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime.
"I am pleased that so many Ninth District localities are eligible to obtain grants to assist law enforcement activities as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. These funds will help Southwest Virginia’s law enforcement personnel protect residents more effectively," Boucher said.
The federal funding can be used for training or equipment to improve law enforcement activity, including the purchase of new in-car cameras or the installation of new communications systems.
Ninth District localities eligible to receive funds are: the towns of Abingdon, Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Marion, Pulaski and Richlands; the cities of Bristol, Galax, and Radford; and Buchanan, Carroll, Dickenson, Giles, Grayson, Henry, Lee, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski, Roanoke, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington, Wise and Wythe counties.
"The availability of this federal funding is one example of how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is providing critical investments in Southwest Virginia communities. It is important to ensure the safety of our law enforcement officers by providing the best equipment and training possible. The provision of federal funds for law enforcement agencies throughout the Ninth District is a necessary step in protecting the people who protect us," Boucher concluded.
