News & Notices
The Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) Program will provide funding to assist eligible states, local units of government, and tribes in preventing, preparing for, and responding to coronavirus. As the State Administering Agency (SAA) for the CESF Program in Idaho, the Idaho State Police (ISP) will apply for the federal funding allocated to the state and subgrant a portion of these funds to local units of government, state agencies, Tribal governments, and nonprofit or faith-based organizations.
All CESF programs in Idaho must have a criminal justice nexus and use funds for immediate, as well as, future needs related to the coronavirus.
Permissible Uses of Funds
Funds awarded under the CESF Program must be utilized to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. Allowable projects and purchases include, but are not limited to, overtime, equipment (including law enforcement and medical personal protective equipment), hiring, supplies (such as gloves, masks, sanitizer), training, travel expenses (particularly related to the distribution of resources to the most impacted areas), and addressing the medical needs of inmates in state, local, and tribal prisons, jails, and detention centers.
Once federal funding has been awarded, PGR will publish the solicitation for CESF subgrant applications on our website and send a notification through ILETS and our Mailing List.
