Welcome to the EMS-Grant Information Funding Tool (E-Gift), the new Rescue Squad Assistance Fund (RSAF) online grant application system. The E-Gift will replace the Consolidated Grant Application Program (CGAP), the software program used in the past. E-Gift automates the grant process by using a web-based system to pre-populate your agency data making the grant process easier to navigate. We know you will find this user-friendly tool useful in your grant application writing and submission process.
The E-Gift system requires three types of users: an Authorized Agent, a Financial Officer and an Agency Operational Medical Director. The Authorized Agent, or grant submitter, is the person who has the ability to create and make any necessary modifications to the grant. The Financial Officer will have the capability to review and e-sign the grant. Follow the guidelines below to create these user types. The Agency Operational Medical Director (OMD) will have the capability to review and e-sign the grant. All OMD's have accounts already established with the Office of EMS. OMD's are required to use their existing account to log into E-Gift.Licensed EMS Agencies:
A licensed EMS Agency is an agency that is authorized by the Office of EMS to provide emergency medical services in the state as an EMS agency. If you are submitting a grant for a Licensed EMS Agency you need to contact your Licensed Agency Super User
to have your current EMS Portal account set up with E-Gift. The Agency Super User is the person who can access your EMS Agency Portal to update agency information, create user accounts, and handle affiliation requests from providers. If you don't know who your agency super user is, click here
to search your agency to view your agency super user information.
