Grants to Idaho governmental and multi-governmental organizations for the maintenance, purchase, or leasing of first responder communications systems. Projects that demonstrate collaboration of equipment between two or more agencies are encouraged. Eligible uses of funds include computer hardware, software, database provisioning, training, salaries directly related to such systems, costs of establishing such systems, management, maintenance and operation of hardware and software applications and agreed-to reimbursement costs of telecommunications providers related to the operation of such systems.

The IPSCC will give consideration to on-going maintenance fees for 911 phone systems based on a sliding scale (1 st year @ 100%, 2nd year @ 90%, 3rd year @ 80%, and on down). This will be based on a PSAP’s financial status at the time of application. Also (on a case by case basis) the IPSCC will consider assistance in paying lines fees when consolidating 911 phone systems.
