This calendar will be updated with 2020 calendar dates when they become available.
PSAPs seeking NG9-1-1 funding need to complete a Proposal Acceptance Letter (PAL) The PAL confirms a PSAP's acceptance of the information contained in their NG9-1-1 Migration Proposal (MP) and signals their intent to deploy NG9-1-1. The funding amount requested in the PAL should not exceed the recurring and non-recurring cost estimates contained in the MP. Currently all MPs are based on the AT&T solution. A similar process will be used if a locality selects a different provider.
Once the migration funds are awarded, the PAL requires that you sign a contract vehicle within three months of the award. The deadline dates are listed in the schedule above. For the AT&T solution, this is the AT&T Participation Agreement (PA).
Transitional funding for Text-to-9-1-1 is available for PSAPs to implement this service in advance of their NG9-1-1 deployment to meet the legislatively required deadline of July 1, 2020. This transitional funding replaces any funding identified in a PSAP's MP or included in a PSAP's NG9-1-1 funding award. PSAPs seeking Text-to-9-1-1 funding need to complete a Text-to-9-1-1 Grant Program Application and could receive up to $50,000 in funding to implement this service.
Additional information on the NG9-1-1 Migration and Text-to-9-1-1 funding programs can be obtained from the FY21 PSAP Grant Guidelines.
