The Department of State Health Services (DSHS or Department), Office of Emergency Medical Services Trauma Systems Coordination (OEMS/TS) (Program) announces that there will be a new process for EMS Local Project Grant (LPG) funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. Instead of going through the state contract process, the funds will go through your local Regional Advisory Council. Watch for an announcement from your local Regional Advisory Council (RAC) for information on the process to provide support and enhancement to the pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and trauma care systems. Informaton on Regional Advisory Councils (RACs) can be found at: http://dshs.texas.gov/emstraumasystems/etrarac.shtm.
