The full grant program document is attached below.
The goal of this grant program is to provide financial assistance to Emergency Communications Districts (ECDs) based on demonstrated need(s) in compliance with §11-98 et seq. of the Code of Alabama 1975, as amended. The purpose is to fund non-recurring costs necessary to achieve or maintain continuity and enhancement of 9-1-1 assuring that every location in Alabama has access to 9-1-1 service.
Because the grant program is currently funded from the one percent of the total amount of the statewide 9-1-1 charges paid to the 9-1-1 Board during each month for payment of administrative expenses, funds are limited and award amounts are subject to availability of funds.
The application period for grant cycle 3 will open on June 1, 2016; applications are due on or before July 31, 2016. Review of applications will take place during the month of August 2016 and grants will be awarded at the Alabama 9-1-1 Board meeting on September 21, 2016.
