This is a highly competitive grant program and not all requests can be funded. The following are the results of the matching grants review of the 67 applications submitted. We could not fund all worthwhile projects because of limited funding. Lists of awards and unable-to-fund lists follow for all rural and urban based applications submitted.

Rural Funded / Rural Could Not be funded / Urban Funded / Urban Could not be funded.

We expect to begin accepting new matching grant applications by the third quarter of this calendar year, which will be announced at this website., so please periodically access it for information.

All organizations are eligible for these grants for the improvement and expansion of pre-hospital EMS in Florida.

Meanwhile, if you have any comments or suggestions for improvements concerning the state EMS matching grants and its processes, please let us know.

County Government Grants 2022-2023 Paragraph (a) of Subsection 401.113 (2), Florida Statutes

This is not a competitive grant program. Each year the state returns to each county government 45% of its own annual deposits into the state EMS trust fund from traffic fine surcharges. The funding is contingent upon the counties submitting a state EMS application form. Last Year, state EMS dispensed funds to 49 county governments, a total of $1.80 Million.

Seventeen counties did not return the necessary form and the funds not claimed ranged up to $24,950.00, with a collective total of $156,367.00.

We expect to begin accepting new applications during the first quarter of this calendar year, so involved county staff should periodically review this site for the new invitation to request funds.

Solely Florida county governments are eligible for this grant program.
