The Kentucky 911 Services Board is taking applications for 2022 competitive grants. The Board provides the funding in either direct awards, matching money, or public-safety answering point (PSAP) funds to help establish and improve E911, including the implementation of next-generation 911, and to help local governments more efficiently deliver E911 services.
Cities wishing to apply for the grant can learn more about the process here. The Board requests that applications be turned in by March 17, with a March 31, 2022, deadline. Those who successfully secure the funding will learn of their selection in June.
All requests in excess of $30,000 must be bid before the application is submitted unless the project is on the state price contract list. All bids and quotes included in the application must be valid through August 31, 2022.
Only PSAPs certified by the Kentucky 911 Services Board can receive grant funding.
