Grant Description
Grants to Utah governmental, nonprofit, and for-profit emergency medical service providers to improve the provision of emergency services. Applicants must complete the required verification in the funding source's system prior to applying. Funding is intended to cover the reimbursement of expenditures as well as personnel training and continuing education.

Per capita allocation is determined by the following:

(a) County classification,

(b) Number of EMS state licensed personnel in each provider agency actively involved in the provision of emergency medical services.

(c) The level of licensure of each of the EMS personnel, with weighting factors as follows:

EMD, EMR = 1 point

EMT = 2 points

EMT-Intermediate and AEMT (advanced) = 3 points

Paramedic = 4 points 

In FY2025, approved grant applicants may use funds for continuing medical education (CME) or for initial training. No addition application is needed. CME is defined as continuing “medical” education exclusively for agency pre-hospital EMS personnel.
