New funding from CDPHE: EMTS Provider Grants

FY15 Funding Applications Begin Dec. 16 -- Approximately $6.7 million is available through grants and system improvement funding for organizations involved in providing emergency medical and trauma services in Colorado. Funds are available on a reimbursement basis to organizations that have the provision of EMS and trauma services as their primary purpose. This includes EMS agencies, facilities, clinics, fire agencies, training centers, community colleges and other public and private providers of emergency medical and trauma services in Colorado. 
Applicants can request funding for injury prevention where projects use evidence-based strategies to implement a community injury prevention program. Applications must use data to demonstrate need for the project, include an evaluation component, state goals and desired outcomes for the project, describe their collaborative efforts, and demonstrate use of an evidence-based practice.
Apply for these funds starting Monday, Dec. 16 at under the Funding Program tab. Read the full FY15 Funding Guide for details or contact Jeanne-Marie Bakehouse and Michael Gerber with questions.
