Grant will fund EMS study in Dearborn County

Funded by Dearborn Community Foundation grant

(LAWRENCEBURG, Ind.) –  The Dearborn Community Foundation (DCF), Inc. has received a $60,000 Planning Grant from the Lilly Endowment.


DCF is utilizing $40,000 of the grant to help Dearborn County Commissioners hire a consultant to complete a study/plan to have the best quality Emergency Medical Services countywide. 


The other $20,000 will be used to complete convenings of community stakeholders and site visits to other communities aimed at ensuring the Foundation is better informed to help address challenges in Dearborn County.


“We are very thankful Lilly Endowment has once again provided us with a great opportunity to help tackle one of the most compelling challenges in our community – emergency medical services,” said Fred McCarter, DCF Executive Director. “The $40,000 for the EMS study/plan will help elected leaders and volunteers work together to find ways to improve emergency services in our community.” 


Dearborn County Commissioner Allen Goodman says DCF’s regranting of the Lilly Endowment Inc. grant to help the county fund the EMS study/plan is a generous action by both charitable organizations.


“County officials and EMS leaders in our community greatly appreciate the gift of this funding from Lilly Endowment Inc.,” said Goodman. “We are also thankful for Dearborn Community Foundation’s understanding of community needs and its willingness to grant funds to the county to help our efforts to ensure we have the best quality EMS countywide.”


The EMS study/plan will evaluate challenges and successes of EMS in Dearborn County and it will help county leaders and volunteers understand ways to best utilize the existing services, equipment and infrastructure, said Goodman. 


The results of the study will also help with planning how to best utilize public funds to provide the best emergency medical services possible.


The grant was part of the Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow initiative. 


DCF is one of 92 community foundations and affiliate funds in Indiana receiving planning grants through GIFT VIII.
