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

This event was organized by 9-1-1 and Geospatial Services Bureau (NGS)


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
