Competitive Grants for Trauma Systems for the Improvement of Trauma Care

proposed legislation in the Affordable Health Choices Act, due for a vote this year.

page 71.

Funding would be awarded to eligible entities that propose a pilot project to design, implement, and evaluate an emergency medical and trauma system that:

(1) coordinates with health and emergency care providers throughout the region as specified;

(2) includes a mechanism to ensure the patient is taken to the medically appropriate facility in a timely manner;

(3) allows for the tracking of prehospital and hospital resources (e.g., inpatient bed and emergency department capacity) and the coordination of such tracking with regional communications and hospital destination decisions; and

(4) includes a region-wide data management system that reports data to the NEMIS, the NTDB, and Federal and State databanks and registries, and that contains sufficient information to evaluate key elements of emergency response and care, and relevant health outcomes.

It looks like ASPR (Kevin Yerskey) is gonna handle it.

There is another ARRA DHS grant soon to be announced that is for EMS agencies. Check the FEMA and DHS sites frequently.

I looked into the Fire Station grant, but Rescue Squads are not eligible. Seems there are no grants out there for non-transport rescue squads.

Anybody working on the ARRA DHS Fire Station Construction Grants?

Hi, wanted to share I have had success with getting help with equipment purchase from Firehouse Sub foundation. They have a link off the bottom of their home page. They helped get trucks, EZ IO, ResQPOD and other things for agencies.

Look at
they have information on some of the open grants, and I think there is one on there about the Gator. Kurt and his staff are VERY helpful in all aspects and there is no fee for their services!

Jim if you are looking for grant ideas for the building, look at the USDA Grants.
