1. Not sure specifically about where you live, but most agencies don't get funding for their radio systems; they've always been maintained out of their own budget. The primary reasons for wide-area systems are interoperability, better use of a limited resource (frequencies), and economy of scale (maintenance costs are spread out over a larger number of users).
Apparently it does depend on location. New York State requires participation in regional consortia involving more than one county for access to state funding.
