The Malden Fire Department was awarded a total of $21,691 from the MA Department of Fire Services.

The program allows fire departments to purchase and upgrade a variety of equipment that will make firefighters' jobs safer so they in turn can continue to protect our communities. The grants awarded will fund up to 118 types of equipment, protective gear, up-to-date technology and more.

This fiscal year (FY22), the MA Department of Fire Services will invest a total of $5 million into the program, supporting 306 fire departments across the Commonwealth.

Congratulations and thank you Malden Fire Department and Fire Chief Sullivan for protecting our community on the frontlines every day!

The City of Malden was recently awarded a total of $45,000 from the Massachusetts Office on Disability to complete upgrades to the Malden Senior Community Center.

The grant will be funding upgrades to the accessible elements in the bathrooms at the Senior Center; including handicap openers on doors and self-closing hinges on the stall doors. It will also replace the handrails on the ramp to the stage in the auditorium and upgrades to other minor features. The building houses programs for our senior residents, as well as for the Malden Teen Enrichment Center, which runs after-school programs daily.

Thanks to the hard work of the City's Disability Commission, Public Facilities Director Eric Rubin and the Mayor's office, we can ensure everyone has equal access to the programs and services at the Center.

Congratulations again to the Malden Senior Center and thank you for all the wonderful programs and services you provide for our seniors, teens and everyone in between. Hope to see you all soon when the Center reopens again!

The Baker-Polito Administration today announced $13.5 million to support community organizations working in the cities and towns hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the Massachusetts Vaccine Equity Initiative to increase awareness, acceptance and access to the COVID-19 vaccine. These latest grants are part of the Administration’s investment of more than $46.5 million to address vaccine hesitancy.

The Vaccine Equity Initiative aims to support community organizations working in the cities and towns hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding goes towards increasing awareness and expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

$10.65 million was given to launch the Massachusetts Community Health Workers for Resilient Communities (MA CRC) program. 10 organizations in 9 priority communities have been awarded three-year grants to support community health workers in clinical care settings and support local boards of health in increasing COVID-19 vaccination efforts including Cambridge Health Alliance's Malden Care Center.

CHA's Malden location is one of many organizations doing important work in communities hard hit by the pandemic and I am grateful for their efforts to keep our city safe and healthy. Congratulations!
