2017 EMS Local Project Grant Funding Opportunity

CATRAC FUNDING OPPORTUNITY:  LPG Grant Project Requests Due to CATRAC 3/03/2017

The Capital Area Trauma Regional Advisory Council (CATRAC) is currently accepting project request for proposals (RFP) for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Local Project Grant (LPG) funding. 

For this Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Office of Emergency Services Trauma Systems Coordination (OEMS/TS) (Program) has determined to provide these funds directly to the Regional Advisory Councils (RACs) instead of using the state contract process as facilitated in all prior years.  The funds available for the EMS LPG was divided among the twenty-two Regional Advisory Councils (RACs) and added to existing DSHS and RAC contracts.  The CATRAC Region received a total allocation of $22,889.00. 

An organization that is a legal entity under state status and is in good standing with the DSHS and other state and federal programs as listed below.

  • DSHS –licensed EMS providers;
  • DSHS-licensed First Responders Organizations;
  • DSHS-approved EMD education organizations;
  • Regional Advisory Councils, specifically CATRAC for this allocation for regional projects.

Organizations may submit more than one proposal. 

Project proposals are due by March 3, 2017 and should be emailed to
