Grant Description

Grants to Utah governmental, nonprofit, and for-profit emergency medical service providers, including ambulance agencies, paramedic agencies, dispatch agencies, law enforcement, and designated agencies to improve the provision of emergency services. Verification or updates to the EMS personnel roster must be completed prior to applying.

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 FY2024, 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.
