2023 Fire and Supplemental State Aid

The Office of the State Auditor (OSA) is pleased to announce that nearly 60 percent of volunteer fire relief associations and other pension plans met all reporting requirements to be certified as eligible for the Department of Revenue’s review to determine qualification for 2023 fire and supplemental state aid in the first round of state aid disbursements. Both state aid distributions will occur on or about October 1 for those plans certified by the OSA and deemed by the Department of Revenue as qualified to receive state aid.

A list of the 2023 fire and supplemental state aid amounts will be posted on the OSA’s website at the end of September or early October.

If your relief association has not yet submitted its 2022 reporting-year forms to the OSA, please do so as soon as possible. The second certification deadline for 2023 fire and supplemental state aid is November 1.

To be certified as eligible for receipt of state aid in the second round of payments, a relief association must have submitted all required 2022 reporting information to the OSA with enough time for the OSA to complete its review and for all issues identified by the OSA to have been satisfactorily resolved by the relief association
before November 1.
