The National Association of State 9-1-1 Administrators (NASNA) published a white paper last week, discussing various funding models states can implement to support the deployment of Next Generation 911 (NG-911) networks and services NASNA reviewed 19 different funding models and determined that four could meet future NG-911 funding needs in different states, including: (1) keeping the current funding model (assessing fixed monthly fees on voice services) but expanding the funding base to include prepaid wireless and other services; (2) creating a general sales tax; (3) attaching a fee to health insurance plans; and (4) funding 911 services through a state Universal Service Fund.
