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 copy of the FY 2016-2017 County Application (KBEMS G-1) because you MUST attach it to your Application for Funds (KBEMS G-2) in KEMSIS.
  • Ensure that your County Fiscal Court office or Metro government has completed and provided you with a copy of the KCTCS Substitute W-9 form, only if information has changed since the FY 2014 application period. KBEMS will once again use Direct Deposit for the disbursement of funds to your county. Please ensure the information on file is correct.

What does my Agency need to do?

What if my agency needs to change what we originally applied for?

A Substitute Item Form (KBEMS G-3) must be submitted and approved prior to the purchase of any items with grant funds.  The G-3 will be available in KEMSIS prior to July 1, 2016.


Please contact regarding the Ambulance Grant Funding program. Remember the KBEMS office, along with all KCTCS offices, will observe institutional closing from December 19, 2015 through January 3, 2016. During this time no one will be available to answer any last minute questions. The deadline for online submission is set by regulation; the KEMSIS will not accept incomplete applications or those after the deadline of January 31, 2016.

The deadline for online submission is January 31, 2016.

Remember, that there is no longer a ‘Board Approved’ list of items. All items purchased with Ambulance Grant funds must fit into your agency Tier classification as described in 202 KAR 7:520. The KBEMS will utilize FEMA's Authorized Equipment List (AEL) in determining the validity of the item(s) requested.  The FEMA AEL can be found here.
