County (CNT) CHAPTER 11, ARTICLE 6-A
§ 333. Expedited deployment funding of local public safety answering
points. 1. Only local public safety answering points designated and
operated by a governmental entity, other than the state police, shall be
eligible for expedited deployment funding.

2. To apply for expedited deployment funding, such local public safety
answering points shall submit a written enhanced wireless 911 plan. An
enhanced wireless 911 plan shall include the following information and
such other information as may be required pursuant to standards adopted
by the board:

(a) a timeframe for planned enhanced wireless 911 implementation;

(b) a list of all wireless service suppliers licensed to provide
service in the county;

(c) a financial plan, including a summary of projected costs related
to equipment purchase, installation and approved maintenance necessary
to provide enhanced wireless 911 service;

(d) a list of specific projects eligible for expedited deployment
funding contained in the financial plan;

(e) a description of technologies to be used to provide enhanced
wireless 911 service;

(f) documentation supporting the local public safety answering point's
ability to receive and utilize enhanced wireless 911 information within
one hundred eighty days of the submission of the plan; and

(g) a resolution from the governmental entity supporting the local
public safety answering point's request for expedited deployment
funding.

3. The board shall have ninety days to review and approve such local
public safety answering point's enhanced wireless 911 plan. The plan
shall be determined by the board to be complete or incomplete within
ninety days of receipt of the plan. If the board does not issue a
determination of completeness or incompleteness within ninety days of
receipt of the plan, the plan shall be deemed approved. Upon approval of
the local public safety answering point's plan, the board shall submit
recommendations for expedited deployment funding contained in an
approved enhanced wireless 911 plan to the New York state dormitory
authority on a monthly basis pursuant to the provisions of section
sixteen hundred eighty-nine-h of the public authorities law.

4. (a) The dormitory authority shall make final determinations with
respect to such recommendations not later than the end of the following
month and shall convey such recommendations to the department of state.

(b) The department of state, in accordance with the final
determinations by the dormitory authority, shall distribute monies
appropriated for this purpose to the local public safety answering point
for the payment of eligible wireless 911 service costs pursuant to this
section and in accordance with the provisions of section sixteen hundred
eighty-nine-h of the public authorities law.

(c) A local public safety answering point whose plan has been denied
or who has been denied funding may appeal such denial to the board.

5. Following distribution of expedited deployment funds, the local
public safety answering points shall submit receipts to accompany the
approved vouchers demonstrating that such expenditures have been
incurred. Any local public safety answering point which utilizes
expedited deployment funding for purposes other than those authorized by
the board shall be provided with written notice by the board of such
unauthorized expenditures. Upon receipt of the notice, the local public
safety answering point shall cease making any expenditure involving
expedited deployment funding. The local public safety answering point
may petition and shall receive a hearing before the board within a
reasonable time. At the board's discretion, the local public safety
answering point shall be required to refund within thirty days any
expedited deployment funding spent on unauthorized expenditures. Local
public safety answering points which fail to cease making unauthorized
expenditures or fail to comply with a request to refund expedited
deployment funding shall be subject to a suspension of future funding by
the board.

6. Money shall not be allocated for any item other than eligible
wireless 911 service costs as defined in subdivision sixteen of section
three hundred twenty-five of this article.
