1 The E 9-1-1 Fund is a non-appropriated state fund that generates funding by a monthly surcharge on all phone lines (CGS 28-30a). The Fund is administered by the Office of Statewide Emergency Telecommunications (OSET). According to the OSET Annual Report 2009 the estimated FY 10 operating budget is $45,271,595, which is partially covered by a $24,746,790 carryover from FY 09.

2 Transition grants are one-time only funds that are limited in availability and subject to approval by OSET.

3 Any municipality that has a population in excess of 40,000 or is part of a multi-town PSAP already receives a subsidy comparable to the regional PSAP subsidy per Conn. Agencies Regs. 28-24-3 et seq.

4 This calculation is projected using the formula in Conn. Agencies Regs. 28-24-3.

5 Currently the CMED subsidy is $0.30 per capita while the PSAP training subsidy is $0.10 per capita.
