Fiscal Year 2024-2025 Grant Information

What does my County need to do?
  • Ensure that your County Fiscal Court office or Metro government has completed and provided your organization with a SIGNED copy of the 2024-2025 County Application (G1 Form) because you MUST attach it to your Ambulance Block Grant Application in KEMSIS.
  • Include your state Vendor Code (9 Characters, with 'KY' or 'KS' starting the code - Ex'KY0002653') to your Ambulance Block Grant Application in KEMSIS.  If you need a vendor code,  you will need to register via the Kentucky Vendor Self Service (VSS) System (link below).  KBEMS will once again use Direct Deposit for the disbursement of funds to your county. Please ensure the information on your VSS account file is correct.​

What does my Agency need to do?
  • Ensure that your eligible organization has completed and submitted the Ambulance Block Grant Funding FY 24-25 Application in KEMSIS prior to January 31, 2024; including all necessary documents (agency application, accountability of funds, etc.).

What if my agency needs to change what we originally applied for?
  • In the event an organization needs to substitute items originally submitted on an Agency Application (G-2) for a grant year, complete and submit an Ambulance Grant Funding Change Request (G-3) by May 31 of the year following awarding of funds (example: for funds awarded in August 2022, an Ambulance Grant Change Request must be submitted by May 31, 2023). 
  • FEMA Authorized Equipment List - The Authorized Equipment List (AEL) is a list of approved equipment types allowed under FEMA’s preparedness grant programs.​
