Grants to Idaho governmental and multi-governmental organizations operating consolidated emergency communications systems for the maintenance, purchase, or leasing of equipment. Projects that demonstrate collaboration of equipment between two or more agencies are encouraged.
Grant funds may be used only for Consolidated Emergency Communications Systems to pay for the lease, purchase or maintenance of emergency communications equipment for basic and enhanced consolidated emergency systems, including necessary computer hardware, software, database provisioning, training, salaries directly related to such systems, costs of establishing such systems, management, maintenance and operation of hardware and software applications and agreed-to reimbursement costs of telecommunications providers related to the operation of such systems.
The evolution of emergency calling beyond the traditional voice 911 call has shown that the current E911 system is no longer able to support the needs of the future and the expectations of E911 customers. As you may know, Next Generation 911 will eventually be replacing the current E911 system and IPSCC is trying to prepare for this updated system in Idaho. Implementing an updated system within the State will be expensive and will require that the IPSCC prioritize the distribution of grant funds.
The IPSCC will give consideration to on-going maintenance fees for 911 phone systems based on a sliding scale (1 st year @ 100%, 2nd year @ 90%, 3rd year @ 80%, and on down). This will be based on a PSAP’s financial status at the time of application. Also (on a case by case basis) the IPSCC will consider assistance in paying lines fees when consolidating 911 phone systems.
