Grants to Florida nonprofit, for-profit, and governmental emergency medical service agencies to support a broad range of projects to enhance service delivery. Funding may be used for training activities, equipment, administrative and management activities, and evaluations.

Special note: Section 401.111, Florida Statutes, requires the state to assist private nonprofit youth athletic organizations that work in conjunction with local EMS, with costs for automated external defibrillators. We encourage grant requests to accomplish this and ask EMS organizations to encourage this type of grant application.
