County Grant Information

The state Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Program will post at this website during July 2014, the amount of new funds that each of the 67 county governments can obtain as specified by 401.113 (2) (a), Florida statutes.  We will also provide the necessary information and forms that you need.

Contingent upon the county providing to state EMS Programs a completed application form and required information, the amount paid to each county will be 45 percent of its deposits between July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014 into the state emergency medical services EMS Trust fund for traffic surcharges cited in 401.113 (1), Florida Statutes.  This statute subsection also requires that counties must spend the funds solely to improve and expand EMS, which means that the county under law must not use the grant funds for replacement, indirect costs, repeated annual fees, continuation of a current cost level, and ongoing operations.

Matching Grants

The deadline to submit applications for matching grants to the state Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Program expired last February 28.  We can NOT accept any more applications.

The review process is in progress and the state EMS Program will announce final decisions on funding during May.

We will post at this site by June, a list of awards and of projects that we could not fund.  However, we will also send to all applicants an individual notification of the award or inability to fund for every project submitted.

We will again offer the opportunity to apply for funds in the last quarter of this year.  Meanwhile, please let us know if you have any questions.  Contact information is at the top of this website, or you can use your previous modes of communication with us.

We very much appreciate your interest in this state EMS grant program, and your services in Florida's EMS system.
