Triad Associates continues to have great success in securing Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) for our First Responder clients!

Over the past few weeks, three AFG applications written by Triad, totaling more than $820,000, have been awarded by FEMA:

  • North Wildwood Fire Department: $18,756 for the purchase of a new Washer/Extractor/Dryer for turnout gear
  • Wildwood Fire Department: $230,000 for the purchase of dual-band radios for better communication
  • Avalon Volunteer Fire Department – Regional Application: $571,428 for the purchase of dual-band radios to benefit 12 fire departments/companies in Cape May County

Each year, the AFG program receives approximately 12,000 applications from across the country and makes awards to only roughly 20%, making this one of the most competitive federal grant opportunities available.

The key to our success with the AFG?

Through our participation in trainings specifically geared toward writing grants for first responders, Triad knows exactly what kinds of information to include in each section to make our applications stand out in a very crowded field.

Contact Triad today and let our AFG success work for you!

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.

To support those agencies, Triad started its “Great People, Great Places” Initiative in 2020 – a commitment to making quarterly donations to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions.

Because of the positive impact this program has had, we are excited to continue it in 2021!

Every quarter, Triad employees nominate 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 St. Casimir’s Catholic Church Thrift Shop and Food Pantry – a faith-based initiative dedicated to providing food and other staples to those in need in the community. The organization was nominated by Triad Founder and CEO, Mike Zumpino.

Located in Woodbine (Cape May County), St. Casimir’s is a part of the St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish of Marmora. The Thrift Shop is available five days per week, while the Food Pantry operates twice per week. Together and individually, these important resources are making a positive difference in the lives of those needing a helping and compassionate hand.

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.

But communities are more than only people.  Animals also have an important role in improving the quality of life for everyone.

Recently, as part of our “Great People, Great Places” Initiative in which Triad makes a donation to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions, we were proud to support Ocracats of Ocracoke Island, NC.

Formed in the early 1990s, Ocracats is dedicated to controlling and caring for the Island’s growing feral cat population.  The organization was nominated by Triad Chief Operations Officer Tammy Wetzel – a proud cat lover who has two of her own: Keebler and Basho.

Triad’s donation is being used to support Ocracats’ aggressive Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program, as well as their work to feed the feral colonies, offer medical intervention when possible for those injured or ill, and foster and find adoptive homes for kittens.

Under the recently-passed American Rescue Plan, the US Economic Development Administration (US EDA) was allocated $3 Billion in supplemental funding to assist communities in their efforts to build back better by accelerating economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and building local economies resilient to future economic shock. As part of this funding program, six funding components were released, of which four may be of interest to New Jersey and Pennsylvania municipalities:

• Build Back Better Regional Challenge, designed to provide transformational investment to numerous regions across the country to assist with revitalizing regional economies. These regions, working in partnership, will have the opportunity to create or grow regional industry clusters through planning, infrastructure, innovation and entrepreneurship, workforce development, access to capital, and more.• Good Jobs Challenge, to provide assistance with creating collaborative skills training systems and programs through local and regional coalitions across multiple industry types.

• Economic Adjustment Assistance (Supplemental), to address economic injury suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the form of construction or non-construction projects designed to revitalize and build resiliency in local economies.

• Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation, to accelerate the recovery of communities that have been the hardest hit by challenges facing the travel, tourism, and outdoor recreation to invest in infrastructure, workforce, or other projects to support the recovery of the industry and economic resilience of the community in the future.

The US EDA has also set aside $300 Million from the above programs to specifically assist current and former Coal Communities facing job loss because of the contraction of the coal and related industries.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) federally-funded Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) Program is now accepting applications through October 14, 2021.

While the SRTS Program typically funds infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects, the NJDOT is accepting only infrastructure applications in this round.  Such projects include the planning, design, and construction or installation of sidewalks, crosswalks, signals, traffic-calming, and bicycle facilities.

Eligible applicants include counties, municipal governments, school districts, and schools.

Nonprofit organizations are not eligible as direct grant recipients; however, they may partner with a local public agency that will assume responsibility for and administration of the grant.

The purpose of the SRTS Program is to:

  • Enable and encourage children in grades K-8, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school
  • Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age
  • Facilitate the planning, development, and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption, and air pollution in the vicinity of schools

Having secured over $1 billion in funding for our clients over the past 43 years, Triad has the experience and the expertise you need to help write a highly competitive SRTS application.

Contact Triad today to get started on your Safe Routes to Schools application.

Scott Armato has recently joined the Triad team, working primarily in grant writing, but always willing to lend a hand wherever his talents are needed.

Scott comes to us after five years in the marketing department at Cape May Brewing Company where he wrote press releases, blogs, and a number of successful tourism marketing grants.

Prior to that, Scott spent some time as a professional musician, playing the organ at a number of local churches and directing several musicals throughout the area. Faithful theatergoers may recognize Scott from such varied roles as Horton the Elephant in Seussical and the title role in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

While Scott has since given up his musical endeavors, he still enjoys seeing live music. He’s looking forward to his post-pandemic return to such venues as the Fillmore Philly, Ardmore Music Hall, and his favorite spot on the planet – the Mann Music Center – having been lucky enough to perform there with the Philadelphia Orchestra when attending Villanova University.

In addition, Scott loves a good meal, knows every line to the movie Clue, and will happily bond with anyone over a chessboard

Susan DiBiasio recently joined the Triad team, working across three disciplines: Housing, Implementation and Graphic Design.

Before coming to Triad, Susan worked in Marketing, Advertising, Tourism and Graphic Design. This experience, coupled with her keen eye for detail and appreciation for aesthetics, makes her the ideal person to redesign Triad’s Housing Program website – a project she is currently working on.

As a life-long shore resident, Susan is most content by the sea, either at the beach or on the water. Outside of Triad, she enjoys home repair and improvement projects, gardening, amateur photography, reading, writing and spending time with her family.

Susan has a lifelong goal of publishing a book, which she started last year. It is a blend of poetry and prose, against the backdrop of her beach and seascape photos, taken at her favorite beaches in the Wildwoods and Cape May. She hopes to finish this project by the end of the year.

Through their unique environment and passion to make a positive difference in lives and in the community, Freedom NJ helps more people to experience the benefits of skateboarding and improves outcomes for at-risk youth by providing a high-quality, public indoor skate park where skaters of all skill levels and backgrounds can come together to practice their skills, form friendships, and learn from one another – all while enhancing Trenton’s cultural landscape.
