The Department of Military Affairs (DMA) Office of Emergency Communications (OEC) has announced the 2024 Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) GIS grant recipients. A total of 28 grant projects totaling $1,458,838 were awarded to local county land information offices across Wisconsin. One additional award is still pending confirmation.

The competitive GIS grant program was created by the state legislature last year through the passage of Act 261. Grants may be used for “data preparation, data gathering, data creation, geographic information system staffing, data preparation and collection contracts, and training, if these purposes enable Next Generation 911.” More details are provided in the 2024 grant announcement.
