Objectives and Goals
The primary purposes of this initiative are to: 1) assist and encourage consolidations of ETSBs and PSAPs; 2) ensure E9-1-1 coverage is expanded throughout the State; and 3) create more efficient and cost effective systems throughout the State. The anticipated benefit of this initiative is statewide E9-1-1 coverage that reduces the number of transfers of 9-1-1 calls, reduces the amount of infrastructure required statewide, promotes cost savings from resource sharing; facilitates interoperability and resiliency for the receipt of 9-1-1 calls, reduces the number of PSAP’s statewide, and promotes long term cost savings.

Applicants must submit proposals in compliance with the Act and the administrative rules adopted thereunder. The Administrator’s goals in administering this program are to:
Defray costs associated with 9-1-1 system consolidation of systems while increasing the availability and efficiency of E9-1-1 service coverage throughout Illinois
