The purpose of the Finance Committee is to advise the Statewide Emergency Communications Board on all matters which have a financial impact upon the board, its members and users of public safety communications systems across Minnesota.
A Grants Workgroup resides under the Finance Committee made up of a grant liaison from every region. These regional representatives meet quarterly to make recommendations to the Finance Committee and the SECB on how grants will be spent and how grant dollars will be distributed.

Membership is comprised of one primary and one alternate from each of the following: Minnesota Department of Transportation, Minnesota Indian Affairs Council or Tribal Government, the regional emergency services board for the metropolitan area, and one regional emergency communications or emergency services board from greater Minnesota.
