Grants to Colorado emergency medical services providers to improve services throughout the state. Proposal categories include but are not limited to communications, EMS vehicles, EMS and trauma equipment, injury prevention data collection, recruitment and retention, and personnel and services.
The available categories are:
-Ambulance/other EMTS vehicle. Use this category to request an ambulance or a rescue vehicle. A vehicle data recorder is required for all new ambulances purchased through the grant program.
-Communications. Use this category to request radios, pagers and other communication system components.
-Data collection. Use this category to request laptops, desktops, servers, hardware and software for use in the statewide data collection program. You can also use this category to request data linking projects.
-Equipment. Use this category to request cardiac monitor-defibrillators, extrication equipment, training and education equipment, durable personal protective equipment for providers, pediatric equipment or other EMS and trauma equipment. This grant program does not fund disposables or fire-related equipment.
-Consolidated equipment. Applicants interested in coordinating or participating in a consolidated grant for physical goods, use this category. The organization coordinating the project must possess the administrative infrastructure and financial resources to effectively manage the project.
-Injury prevention. Use this category to request funds that address injury prevention needs where projects use evidence-based information for a community injury prevention or health and wellness initiative.
-Personnel and services. Use this category to request funds for personnel, salary and services. All grant funding ends June 30, 2018 so it is important to describe long-range sustainability in your narratives.
-Recruitment/retention. Use this category to request recruitment/retention projects.
-Other. Use this category if none of the above specific categories fit your request.
Certain provider grant categories allow for indirect rates of up to 10 percent of the project operational costs. These categories are injury prevention, personnel and services, recruitment and retention and other. Indirect amounts must be entered into the electronic grant application as a separate line item and are subject to review, evaluation and approval in conjunction with the entire grant request. Indirect rates cannot be applied to capital purchases and are also not allowed in the ambulance and other EMTS vehicle, communications, data collection or equipment categories.
Applicants may only request funding for a project once in each grant cycle. Duplicate requests to fund identical projects will be rejected. For example, an organization may not submit a request for equipment as an individual agency and request the same equipment as part of a consolidated equipment application.
