Program Application and Guidelines
The PSIC Grant Program awarded $968 million in funds to States and Territories to enable and enhance public safety agencies' interoperable communications capabilities. The PSIC Grant Program is a one-time grant opportunity to enhance interoperable capabilities with respect to voice, data, and/or video and encourage the use of innovative cost- and spectrum-efficient technology solutions.
The State Administrative Agency (SAA), designated by the governor, is responsible for obligating PSIC funds to eligible pass-through recipients. Pass-through recipients must be public safety agencies, which include State, local, or tribal government entities or authorized nongovernmental organizations.
The program received applications on August 22, 2007,
from the 56 States and Territories, and every State and
Territory recieved an award on September 30, 2007. As
part of the award, each State and Territory is required
to submit an Investment Justification by December 3, 2007,
with up to ten PSIC Investments. The following guides
will help with the development of the Investment Justification
and individual PSIC Investments:
