On June 1, 2022, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released the Fiscal Year 2022 Rural Emergency Medical Communications Demonstration Project (REMCDP) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).  Given the ongoing pandemic and challenges facing the applicant pool at this time, CISA is extending the application period. Applications are now due by Friday, July 29, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET.
This opportunity will fund up to two demonstration projects that enhance existing emergency communications infrastructure to improve the delivery of rural medical care and address National Emergency Communications Plan implementation gaps.  The REMCDP grant provides funding for public and state-controlled institutions of higher education to work with a public health or medical facility to address barriers and challenges in rural emergency medical communications.  Specifically, applicants must demonstrate their ability to leverage existing technologies and engage non-medical professionals to help establish or sustain statewide medical communications systems and use existing infrastructures to improve the delivery of rural medical care.  Eligible applicants may apply for up to $1,892,500 for a two-year period of performance, beginning on September 30, 2022.  REMCDP funding will be awarded to a maximum of two recipients following a competitive review process for a total of up to $3,785,000.
