How is 9-1-1 Funded in Alabama?
Each telephone subscriber in Alabama pays $1.86 per phone per month on their phone bill and this revenue is forwarded to the State 9-1-1 Board by telephone service providers.
Subscribers that use a pre-paid telephone service pay a percentage at the point of sale and these funds are also forwarded to the State Board.
The State Board disburses funds to the 67 County and 21 Municipality Emergency Communications Districts that administer local 9-1-1 systems. A monthly report of revenue disbursed to ECDs is available here.
