4 4 Overview of Presentation PSAP Grant Committee meetings Wireless Education Program (WEP) Survey Review of changes included in final draft of FY 2015 PSAP Grant Guidelines: –All Programs –WEP –Consolidations

5 5 PSAP Grant Committee Meetings PSAP Grant Committee members began discussing the FY 2015 Guidelines at their Dec 5 th meeting: –Staff presentation on consolidation white paper –Committee requests survey on WEP utilization for next meeting Since then, the Committee has had two additional meetings: –April 11 th –May 9th

6 6 Who Uses the WEP? In each year, there are some PSAPs that receive money but do not use it within the allotted year. Applications have increased but usage remained flat. Not Completed

7 7 What Hinders a PSAP? In the recent WEP Survey, we asked for reasons a PSAP may not have applied or why they didn’t use all the funds. Some we can help with!

8 8 We Heard Many Suggestions The survey also gave us valuable insight into how it might better serve the PSAP community! “I think allowing the PSAP to use it for other educational classes would be helpful. It would open the door to benefit more of the dispatchers.” “[Allow] for any dispatch related training to be covered.” “Provide additional funding to benefit a greater number of personnel.” “Also an educational program for personnel new to the operation of a PSAP.” “Provide me sub-regional programs. With budget restraints and shortage of personnel travel difficult to manage and cover PSAP requirements.” “Need to allow neighboring Jurisdictions to have a combined grant so that we can use the monies to help pay for mostly training.”

9 9 Proposed Changes - All Programs Change annual grant application deadline from October 31 st to September 30 th Multi-year funding for same project no longer allowable Clearer language for eligibility included –Extends to draw down requests Explain appropriate use of budgetary quote Clarify Programmatic and Financial Report Requirement –Does not apply to WEP grant awards

10 10 Proposed Changes - WEP Includes both 9-1-1 and GIS specific group education/training opportunities Waiver process for out of state events and vendor sponsored events Can combine individual and regional grants within $2,000 limit Meals included Training objectives

11 11 Proposed Changes - Consolidations Add Consolidation and Consolidation Feasibility Study to Continuity and Consolidation Program Priorities –20% local match for consolidation studies Essential 9-1-1 Priorities within the Continuity and Consolidation Program should be consecutively ranked for Out of Service and Non-Vendor Supported Tiers –CPE, Primary Mapping System, GIS: High Priority, Call Accounting Equipment, CAD, and Voice Loggers
