Federal Grant Awarded To Enhance Indiana 911 Equipment
Wednesday, August 14, 2019

A $2.8-million grant has been awarded to dispatch centers across the Hoosier State to enhance 911 equipment across Indiana. The funds derive from the 911 Grant Program, provided by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The grant itself will be split among 29 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) within the Hoosier State, and awarded funds will go toward several different projects. One of the main goals support the transition of PSAPs and their interconnecting 911 network and core services.

The grant itself is also a 60/40 match, where PSAPs will be required to pay 40% of their project cost while the other 60% is covered by the grant funding.

Across the tri-state region, it was noted that LaGrange County 911 would be the only recipient of funds allocated.
