    Summary

    The Education Incentive Grant (EIG) funds aid rural ambulance services in recruiting, training, and certifying ambulance attendants. Funds are awarded to licensed ambulance services in rural, frontier, and densely settled rural areas of Kansas. The purpose of the program is to assist rural and frontier services with the costs associated with becoming a certified attendant.

    Grant money may be requested based on the following three criteria:

    • Second priority shall be given to ambulance services submitting applications seeking grants to pay the cost of continuing education for attendants, instructor- coordinators and training officers.
    • Third priority shall be given to ambulance services submitting applications seeking grants to pay the cost of education for attendants, instructor-coordinators and training officers who are obtaining a post-secondary education degree.
