As of July 1, 2004, the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) became responsible for administering and disbursing the state contribution for state matching funds for the Volunteer Firefighter Pension Fund (VFP) state match program (CRS 31-30-1112). The Fire and Police Pension Association (FPPA) previously administered the program. This program is designed to help local governments provide a retirement benefit to attract volunteers. All volunteer firefighting entities, which provide a volunteer firefighter pension, are eligible to receive a state match. The entities must contribute funds generated from taxes (property, sales, S.O., etc.) which the state will match based on a statutory calculation.
