City of Versailles to receive 911 grant

On July 7, Gov. Andy Beshear joined Kentucky 911 Services Board Chair and Kentucky Office of Homeland Security (KOHS) Executive Director Josiah Keats in announcing 53 grants totaling $2,881,038.55 to improve and enhance 911 call center operations. The City of Versailles will receive $9,164.45 for a project to deploy text-to-911 services. For the 2020 grant cycle, there were 61 applications representing $3.6 million in requests. KOHS followed an extensive grant review process to evaluate and prioritize grant funding. After 911 Services Board staff ensured all documentation was properly submitted, a team of 911 and grant subject matter experts representing emergency call centers and area development districts across the commonwealth analyzed and scored each grant. Following the comprehensive peer review process, a second team of subject matter experts performed a technical review to ensure each grant request met grant specifications, and statutory and regulatory guidelines. The highest scoring projects were then submitted to the full 911 Services Board, which unanimously approved the grant awards at their June 30 meeting.
