New Federal Legislation Provides Funds to Implement Enhance 911 Act

December 22, 2005  | 

A House-Senate Conference Committee has approved the Digital Television and Public Safety Act as part of the Budget Reconciliation conference report, which provides for $43.5 million to implement the Enhance 911 Act that was signed into law last year.

In addition to establishing a national 9-1-1 Implementation and Coordination Office, the Enhance 911 Act authorizes up to $250 million per year in matching grants for states, local governments, and tribal organizations to improve their 9-1-1 emergency communications centers with the capability to know the location of emergency callers when dialing 9-1-1.
