Effective October 1, 2013, grants are now available to law enforcement agencies in the following areas: Equipment grants, Mini grants and Multi-jurisdictional grants.
Please note that the application process has changed this year. Applications are to be submitted by using WASPC’s online application process at https://adobeformscentral.com/?f=Dbkbcy15Y3JheNWnle1F4w. You will only need to submit one application, all three grant types are contained within the application.
Please review the list below for information on maximum awards per unit for specific equipment:
Lidar Radar: $3,000
Handheld Radars: $799
Regular In-Car Video System: $1,000
Rear Antenna: $400
Digital In-Car Video System: $2,500
Scanner (Sector): $255
Printer (Sector): $400
Each grant type will still require that you complete an agreement form. As you are completing the application you will have the option of (a) scanning the appropriate agreement form and attaching it to the application or (b) printing off the agreement form and mailing it in. Please be sure to do one or another, the application is not complete without this agreement form. The agreement forms are available at below.
Funding priorities will be given for Traffic Safety equipment requests where traffic safety enforcement is a high priority, mini grant requests will be given a lower priority. Applications will not be approved if the request is to replace equipment.
Grant applications will be accepted through Friday, December 13, 2013. Applications will be reviewed by WASPC’s Traffic Safety Committee in mid-January and award notices will be mailed approximately one week after they meet. Only upon receipt of your approval letter may you purchase authorized materials. Please remember that WASPC is responsible for the amount of the grant only; any expense incurred in excess of the grant amount is the responsibility of the agency.
Thank you for your continued support of this valuable program!
