All funds for the Training and Equipment Grant (Priority 1) are issued through a reimbursement process. (Please see Training and Equipment Approved Reimbursement List.) Grant recipients may submit invoices throughout the award year to the Division of EMS for reimbursement. Reimbursement requests must be submitted through the EMS Grants Management System. Supporting documentation should also be uploaded in the grants system and submitted with the reimbursement request. If your agency is not able to submit supporting documentation electronically, forms may be faxed to 614-351-6006, or mailed to:
Ohio EMS Grants Program
P.O. Box 182073
Columbus, Ohio 43218-2073
A reimbursement check will be mailed within 30 - 45 days.
Upon submission of the Mid-Year Project Report, financial report and proof of expenditures and approval by the Division of EMS, agencies may receive up to half of the awarded grant funds. The remainder of the grant funds will be released once the submitted Final Project Report, financial report, and requested expenditures are approved by the Division of EMS. Failure to submit a timely Mid-Year Project Report or Final Project Report shall result in the termination of the grant and ineligibility for future participation in the State Board of Emergency Medical, Fire, and Transportation Services (EMFTS) Research Grant Program.
