FY20 NG9-1-1 Funding Guidelines and True-Up Process

This event was organized by 911 and Geospatial


The primary focus of the current PSAP Grant Program Guidelines is to lay out the process for determining and allocating funding for allowable NG9-1-1 migration costs during the multi-year NG9-1-1 deployment period, as well as continue to provide funding for 9-1-1 and GIS education and training in FY 20. As a result, this guidelines document contains two programmatic areas, the NG9-1-1 Migration Program and PSAP Education Program (PEP). The NG9-1-1 Migration Program provides funding for NG9-1-1 migration expenses for eligible program participants throughout the Board established deployment period. The PEP provides funding to primary PSAPs for the purpose of obtaining 9-1-1 and GIS education and training. ISP staff will begin the FY 2018 true-up process during the first week of July. Data collection will be based on the new wireless 9-1-1 funding formula. This formula includes only two data elements – population and total 9-1-1 calls. Until the next recalculation of the wireless 9-1-1 distribution percentages, 2017 population data from the Weldon Cooper Center will be used. As a result, the only call load data ISP staff will need to collect for each PSAP is the total number of 9-1-1 calls received during FY 2018. For most PSAPs, ISP staff will be able to complete a true-up using call load data collected in ECaTS. If you have compared ECaTS reports to your native MIS reports, you may have noticed a difference in the numbers. Every system has unique criteria for how they generate reports; however, by using ECaTS statewide, we now have a uniform representation of call load data across all PSAPs. As a result, FY 2018 will be a baselining year for call load data. FY20 NG9-1-1 Funding Guidelines and True-Up Process Presentation
