Lunch and Learn: Challenges and Opportunities for Funding the Future of 9-1-1
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
12:15pm to 1:30pm (Lunch Served at 12:00pm)
Capitol Visitors Center (CVC) – Washington, DC
The NG911 Institute invites you to attend a “lunch and learn” session on 911 funding challenges and opportunities. Experts from government, public safety and industry will provide an overview of how the 911 system is funded and the challenges communities face in maintaining legacy 911 systems while also planning for critical upgrades to next generation 911 (NG911) necessary to keep up with rapid changes in technology.
Panelists will discuss how 911 is funded at the state and local level, the challenges resulting from state 911 fee diversion for unrelated purposes, efforts to quantify the costs of legacy and NG911 systems (including potential cost savings), potential funding models for NG911, the availability of federal 911 grant funding, and potential congressional efforts to provide funding for NG911.
