Applications postmarked after December 31, 2013 and incomplete applications WILL NOT BE PROCESSED!
KBEMS is making minor adjustments to the submission timelines to allow for better compliance with the regulation. This also allows KBEMS to disburse future grant funding to your county in a more timely manner.
KBEMS will administer the FY 2014 and FY 2015 application periods at the same time.
County and Agency applications for FY 2014 and FY 2015 will BOTH be due prior to December 31, 2013.
This will allow KBEMS to disburse funding more expeditiously to your county.
