Grants to New York counties to improve the operations of public safety dispatch and call-taking services. Funding is intended to facilitate operations of public safety communications and strengthen statewide interoperable communications for first responders. Operating and personnel costs associated with public safety answering points are eligible costs for reimbursement under this program.
The Grant is noncompetitive and will allocate money by a formula which equitably distributes funding among awardee counties based on quantifiable elements and relevant metrics. The formula relies on criteria reflective of a county’s operational scope, demographic elements, emergency services call metrics, progress made in deploying new technology, and adherence with State and national guidelines for emergency communications.
The Grant not only supports an awardee county’s existing operations, but also encourages the development of Next Generation 911 (NG911) technologies and the Geographic Information System (GIS) data needed for NG911. The Grant also promotes the development of operational and procedural efficiencies and overall collaboration between different jurisdictions, such as other counties and state agencies.
The objectives of the Grant are:
1) To facilitate PSAP consolidation, regional initiatives related to 911 operations, implementation of NG911, and improvements in the operations of public safety communications; and
2) To develop multijurisdictional PSAP compatibility throughout the state and support statewide interoperable communications for first responders to improve public safety.
