FY 2007 Public Safety Interoperable Communications Grant Program (PSIC): This is a modification to the synopsis entitled Public Safety Interoperable Communications Grant Program which was originally posted on July 19, 2007. You are notified that the following changes are made pursuant to Section 2201 of Pub. L. No. 110-53, which expanded the PSIC Grant Programs purpose by: (1) including planning and coordination as eligible costs; (2) explicitly permitting funds to be used for equipment and software; (3) allowing investments in other public safety communications spectrum bands; and (4) requiring the establishment and implementation of strategic technology reserve by public safety agencies. Accordingly, NTIA now amends the Notice of Availability of Funds as follows to include pre-positioning activities as a program and selection priority; to remove the restriction involving the 700 MHz frequency band; to amend the Funding Availability section to set aside $75 million to fund pre-positioning activities; and to exclude planning and coordination activities from the 20% cost share requirement. In addition, the new date upon which Statewide Interoperable Communications Plans and Investment Justifications must be submitted is December 3, 2007.
