FY19 EMS Allotment/Allocation Eligibility

Attention EMS Providers

A licensed EMS Provider that provides 911 and\or emergency transfers may be eligible for funding through the following funds:

  • Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Care System Account (911 fund);
  • Emergency Medical Services, Trauma Facilities, and Trauma Care System Fund (1131 fund); and
  • Designated Trauma Facility and Emergency Medical Services Fund (3588 fund).

We will provide the ability for you to check your organization's funding eligibility on the Excel spreadsheets on the lower part of this web page. The spreadsheets will be updated as new reports are received from your Regional Advisory Council (RAC).  They will show if your organization has met requirements for RAC participation, Expenditure Reporting and Contract verification, in three separate columns. A “N/A” in a field indicates that particular requirement does not apply to your organization. A “NO” or blank field in ANY column indicates you are NOT eligible for funding.



Emergency Healthcare Runs for FY 2019 EMS Allotment Funding




Contract Verification

In order to be considered for funding in any county outside your county of licensure, we must have a copy of your contract or letter of agreement for emergency medical services (Confirmation Form) you provide within that county(ies).  
Funding rules require contracts or letters of agreement must be dated and submitted to the department on or before August 31st.  

Expenditure Reporting
Submission of all appropriate expenditure reports to the RAC at the end of each contracted fiscal year. This requirement applies if your organization received EMS Allotment/Allocation funds, and the “Expenditure Report” column will be updated for all providers as information becomes available. You may contact your RAC with questions about your expenditure documentation requirements. 

How Much Money is Distributed?
Funding is dependent on the amount of money available in the accounts and calculation of the funding formula. The formula includes a trauma service area’s geographic size, its population, and the number of eligible emergency healthcare runs (trauma AND medical) submitted to the DSHS State EMS/Trauma Registry. 

RAC Distribution Plan
Funds are disbursed through your RAC which determines how much funding your organization may receive through the RAC distribution plan. Contact staff in your local RAC office for details regarding distribution of EMS Allotment/Allocation funds.

Statute and Rules
Health & Safety Code: 773.122
Texas Administrative Code: §157.130 (d) and §157.131 (d).
