The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), in partnership with SAFECOM and the National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC), publishes the Interoperability Business Case: An Introduction to Ongoing Local Funding document. This updated resource helps public safety officials justify local emergency communications funding by providing step-by-step guidance on building a compelling business case. The document also provides a brief overview of how dedicated emergency communications grant funding has evolved and features a real-world example of business case success.
