Cumberland County 9-1-1 Funding

Cumberland County Municipalities,

 

Funding for 9-1-1 in Pennsylvania is at risk. The state’s 9-1-1 surcharge, which provides funding to counties, is set to expire on Jan. 31, 2024.

Cumberland County is urging our state lawmakers to reauthorize and increase this surcharge before it’s too late.

If the surcharge is not reauthorized, the primary source of funding for 9-1-1 services will disappear, causing a nearly $10 million 9-1-1 budget to fall on county taxpayers.

Please consider sharing the attached image along with a link to our website on your social media pages and website to help get the word out to our residents.

Learn more about this issue on our website at www.cumberlandcountypa.gov/5128/9-1-1-Funding

 If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you!
