WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) announced Port Security Grant Program funding in New Jersey’s 6th Congressional District.  The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.  The Carteret Fire Department will receive $40,000, the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office will receive $98,336 and the Perth Amboy Fire Department will receive $144,544.

“I am pleased to announce these port security grants that will be put to use in Monmouth County, Carteret and Perth Amboy,” said Congressman Pallone.  “The reality is that New Jersey’s ports face a legitimate threat of attack and these funds will help the ongoing and necessary security enhancement process.”

The Port Security Grant Program supports transportation infrastructure security activities to implement security plans among port authorities, facility operators, and state and local government agencies required to provide port security services.
