The Status of State Emergency Medical Services Office Funding and Utilization of Section 402 and 408 Highway Safety Funding is now available from NASEMSO. This monograph represents the third comprehensive examination
of state EMS funding.

To the extent that funding equals resources, the level and trends associated with state EMS funding represent an important area of interest relating to a component of the healthcare system charged with a critical safety-net function. In this study, NASEMSO examined the levels and sources of all funding to support state EMS offices for Fiscal Year 2009 and compared those data with comparable information from previous studies. NASEMSO also specifically examined the access and use of Section 402 and Section 408 Highway Safety Funding currently experienced by state EMS offices. This monograph represents extensive work over the past year in instrument design, information gathering and data analysis.
