Help the PSFA influence the future of public safety communications
Since its inception in 2002, the PSFA has donated more than $13 million to over 250 public safety agencies across the country to assist in the deployment of Enhanced 9-1-1 and more than 200 telecommunicators for disaster relief and other emergencies. The PSFA continues its grant making in support of public and nonprofit public safety communications efforts.
Funding for the PSFA has been provided by a variety of sources, including donations from corporations, APCO members and staff and the Wireless E-911: PSAP Readiness Fund, a non-profit organization established by Nextel Communications and dedicated to supporting the timely implementation of wireless E-911.
PSFA’s process for grant administration consists of four components:
- APCO/PSFA Staff – program administration, resource development, external relations, applications screening, and reporting to Board.
- PSFA Advisory Committee
- Applicant evaluation and application review and recommendations.
- APCO/PFSA Board of Officers/Directors – approval/denial of grant applications and sources of revenue, endowment trustee activities, and supporting staff on external relations and resource development.
Your donations will assist the projects of:
- APCO International Committees and Approved Project Groups and Task Forces
- Public Safety Communications Agencies (government or nonprofit)
- APCO Partner Organizations (nonprofit only)
- APCO Subsidiary Organizations and Parent
