The EMS Flex Grant will provide $12 million to stabilize EMS providers and to ensure they can continue to respond to emergencies across Wisconsin. EMS providers in Wisconsin have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by greater demand for EMS services, increased costs associated with providing those services, and limitations on public funding for those services created by the economic consequences of the pandemic. Therefore, all EMS services licensed in the State of Wisconsin are eligible to request funding in this process. A total of $12 million is available from the American Rescue Plan Act—Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. Funds will be provided for reasonable operating expenses for EMS, including but not limited to: 

  • Medical and personal protective equipment/protective supplies
  • Emergency operations including training required to maintain licensure or upgrade service level
  • Response equipment including training required to operate the equipment
  • Emergency response vehicles 
  • Emergency medical devices/trauma stabilization/pediatric and neonatal transport equipment
  • Staff recruitment and retention

All EMS services licensed in the state of Wisconsin will need to complete a brief form that describes what the funds are needed for. Applications must be submitted through e-Licensing.
