TOPEKA, Kan. — Governor Laura Kelly announced that more than $6.2 million from the Local Safety and Security Equipment (LSSE) grant program was awarded to 72 Kansas law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, and 911 communications agencies. The grant funds are received through the Strengthening People Revitalizing Kansas (SPARK) program funded by the federal American Rescue Plan (ARPA).

“It is critical that our first responders have the equipment necessary to protect and serve Kansans when an emergency arises,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “This funding will ensure agencies across the state have the resources needed to quickly and successfully deliver aid.”

The purpose of the LSSE Grant Program is to improve the accessibility and efficiency of emergency services to Kansans. The funding provides equipment upgrades critical to emergency response; supports updated interoperability communications systems; and updates and replaces unsafe, damaged wildland firefighting equipment that meets national standards.

A total of $6,208,299 was awarded to the agencies.
