Triad knows that the heart of every community is its people, and so many nonprofits are making a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.

As part of our commitment to support the places where we work and the agencies that share our goal of strengthening those communities, Triad has created a “Great People, Great Places” Initiative – a commitment to making quarterly donations to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions.

Every quarter, each Triad employee nominates a nonprofit that is important to them, and those nonprofits that receive donations are selected randomly from those nominations.

Recently, Triad was proud to make a donation to the I Am Chosen Foundation — a nonprofit that is dedicated to providing economic relief to disadvantaged at-risk families.  Founded in 2012 in Glassboro, Gloucester County, NJ, I Am Chosen was nominated by Triad President Carolyn Zumpino.

Triad’s donation was used to help the foundation provide 200 Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets to those in need in the community as part of their Thanksgiving Dinner Drive-By.

Through programs that include education, mentorships, training, counseling, and transitional homes, the I Am Chosen seeks to “help men and women grow up, stand up, and take their rightful place in the home.”

To learn more about the I Am Chosen Foundation, please visit them at www.iamchosenfoundation.org.

In the months ahead, we’ll be sharing more about area nonprofits that Triad is proud to support through our “Great People, Great Places” Initiative.

I am a History nerd.

 

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the stories of the people, places and events that have shaped our nation and our world.

 

One of my all-time favorite figures from American history is Harriet Tubman – the bold, brave abolitionist and operator of the Underground Railroad who risked her own life to help over 70 people escape the ugly, bitter bonds of slavery.

 

Despite being an iconic, national hero, many from this area are not aware that Tubman was active in southern New Jersey – in the City of Cape May specifically, which she used as a headquarters for her secret network of routes by which dozens of slaves were transported to free states.

 

So closely linked are Cape May and Tubman that residents, stakeholders and local government officials have been working to establish the Harriet Tubman Museum in the City – a goal that was realized in September of this year when the museum opened with great celebration near the intersection of Lafayette and Franklin Streets, in the old parsonage house of the Macedonia Baptist Church.

 

The location of the museum is important, not just because it is housed in a space that is significant to the City’s rich African-American history, but because it is adjacent to the former Franklin Street School:  a segregated elementary school built in 1927 and used as such until 1948 when segregation was constitutionally banned in New Jersey.  Today, the school is a designated New Jersey African-American Historic Site.

Very early this year, Triad was engaged by the Cape May County Library to write a grant to obtain funding from the highly-competitive New Jersey Library Construction Bond Act to repurpose the Franklin Street School into a new public library for the City of Cape May and surrounding communities.

 

Because of my great affection for Harriet Tubman, I was truly excited and humbled to be asked by my boss, Mike Zumpino, to spearhead the application process and write the narratives that would tell, in a compelling way, the intersecting story of Cape May, its deep connection with African-American history, and the need for a new public library.

 

Working with a team of great professionals, volunteers and elected officials, Triad was able to help create an outstanding application that recently won the Cape May County Library system a $3.44 million award – one of just 38 awarded statewide! — to create at the Franklin Street School the destination library we all envisioned when we started on this journey nearly a year ago:  one that offers the services and programming expected in a contemporary library, while preserving and celebrating the notable African-American history of the region.  Though as of this writing the legislation making the appropriation for the grant must still be signed by the Governor, we are all optimistic that the award will be made official very soon.

 

If you would like to learn more about Harriet Tubman and her incredible connection to South Jersey, check out Cape May’s Harriet Tubman Museum online at https://www.harriettubmanmuseum.org/.

Triad has heard that the next round of FEMA’s Aid to Firefighters Grants (AFG) may open in mid-November.

Although this has not yet been confirmed, it does serve as a reminder that now is the time to start laying the ground work for a highly-competitive application.

Each year, the AFG Program receives roughly 12,000 applications nationwide, but funds only about 20% of them.

 

FEMA’s highly-competitive Aid to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program just opened and competition nationwide is expected to be formidable as always.

Each year, only about 20% of the more than 12,000 AFG applications received are funded.

And depending on what an applicant is requesting, the odds of success can go down even further.

Before writing your AFG application, do you know the answers to the following questions?

  • What phrases are reviewers looking for in the application narrative?
  • What are the project cost thresholds that make some applications more likely to be funded?
  • Which sections of the AFG application are getting the most attention from reviewers?
  • What common errors cause an AFG application to be rejected without ever getting read by a reviewer?

The grant writers at Triad know the answers to these questions.

The work that first responders do, and the equipment they need to do it, are too important to leave to chance.

You need the experience and expertise of Triad Associates to help your AFG application stand out in the crowd.

Our grant writers have participated in numerous AFG workshops and public safety grant writing seminars.

We know what the reviewers are looking for and we know how to give it to them.

Whether you need equipment, turnout gear, a vehicle or any of the many items funded by the AFG Program, Triad is well-positioned to write a strong, competitive application for you.

Call Triad Associates today.

The Borough of Woodbine was recently awarded a $990,770 Emergency and Imminent Community Water Assistance Grant (ECWAG) grant from the US Department of Agriculture to remediate a former industrial site that is threatening a public water supply in the community.  The grant was written by Triad Associates.

 

The ECWAG program enables water systems that serve eligible rural communities to prepare for, or recover from, emergencies that threaten their safe drinking water.

 

Woodbine will be using its nearly-$1 million in grant funding to eliminate a potential water contamination threat at the former Hat Factory site, which is directly adjacent to one of the Borough’s drinking water wells.  The project, estimated to take 18 months to complete, will clean the soils, prevent potential seepage of contaminated groundwater into the water well, and cap the site.

 

In addition to helping maintain a healthy water system for residents and businesses in Woodbine, it is anticipated that the work will also allow the parcel to be utilized for redevelopment opportunities.

The City of Wildwood Fire Department (WFD) was recently awarded $16,461 from FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighters (AFG) COVID-19 Supplemental Grant Program, for the purchase of personal protective equipment.

The AFG is one of the nation’s most competitive grant programs with only about 20% awarded each year out of approximately 12,000 applications.  The COVID-19 Supplemental Round was enough tougher, with FEMA expecting to award only about 1,000 grants nationwide.

Although Wildwood’s year-round population is only about 5,300 people, making it the 366th smallest municipality (in terms of population) in the state out of 565 towns, the influx of visitors from Memorial Day to Labor Day swells the daily population to over 250,000, making Wildwood the 2nd most populated municipality in the entire state – second only to Newark with 277,000 residents.

While at the time of the application Cape May County had just 424 confirmed COVID cases, the WFD recognized that the summer tourist season and growth in population would bring with it an increased exposure to the virus by residents, visitors and our personnel alike.

To help make this case for funding to FEMA, the WFD turned to Triad Associates to write the successful application.

Under the AFG COVID-19 Supplemental Grant, the WFD will be purchasing goggles, respirators and filters, coveralls, and gloves to help keep personnel and the public safe during service calls.

With this award, and over the past 4 years, Triad has written successful grants for the WFD totaling more than $1.4 million for vehicle acquisition, equipment purchases, hiring firefighters and more.
