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 FY21-22 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 FY2020 application period.

What does my Agency need to do?

  • Ensure that your eligible organization has completed and submitted the Agency Application (KBEMS G-2) in KEMSIS prior to January 31, 2021. The G-2 in KEMSIS will require you to attach the County or Metro government's completed G-1.
  • Ensure that your eligible organization has completed and submitted the Accountability of Funds (KBEMS G-4) in KEMSIS prior to January 31, 2021. The G-4 in KEMSIS will require you to attach the relevant supporting documentation, such as receipts.

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

  • In the event an organization needs to substitute items originally submitted on a G-2 for grant year 2021-2022, complete and submit a Substitute Item Form G-3 by May 31, 2021 in KEMSIS.

Questions?

Please contact our office through the Support Portal regarding the Ambulance Grant Funding program. Remember the KBEMS office, along with all KCTCS offices, will observe institutional closing from December 21, 2020 through January 1, 2021. 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, 2021.

Remember, there is no longer a Board Approved list of items. The KBEMS will utilize FEMA's Authorized Equipment List (AEL) in determining the validity of the item(s) requested.
