    2008 funding levels:

    Congress appropriated a total of $560 million to carry out the activities of the FY 2008 AFG program. Congress directed DHS to administer these funds as indicated below.

    Up to 5 percent of appropriated funds ($28 million) may be used for program administration.

    Up to 2 percent of appropriated funds ($11.2 million) may be used for awards to nonaffiliated EMS organizations.

    No more than 25 percent of appropriated funds ($140 million) may be used for vehicle awards.

    No less than 3.5 percent of funds ($19.6 million) must be awarded for EMS equipment and training.

    No less than 5 percent of appropriated funds ($28 million) must be made available to make grants for fire prevention activities (FP&S grants). However, due to the importance of mitigation activities, the 2008 FP&S will be allocated $35 million for grants.

    No less than $3 million must be awarded for foam and foam-related equipment.

    1 in 10 vehicles are awarded; = over 700 to be awarded.

    Even with the extra $4 mil in the truck award pot I'd still expect to see closer to 700 than 750 or higher again. With further price increases in materials and the 2009 NFPA changes same trucks cost more (again).

    Default price increases

    I had to include 25000 extra dollars for physicals and a driver training program to get our members up to nfpa compliance. From what I understand many of the appartus requestes where much higher in dollar amount for this reason. this might decrease the numbers of awards.

    just a thought

    Would the fact that a Fast Attack was spec'd with CAFS help it's chances, given the mandate of:
    "No less than $3 million must be awarded for foam and foam-related equipment." ?

    Would help slightly from a narrative standpoint, but primary determinant will be the need for the truck in the first place for the computer side of things.
