    Good luck to all that applied! Got 3 million dollars to give away over the next two years. I hope we hear something next month.

    Ours is in. I am wondering if there will be less applications because of the short application period.

    Ya, I wasn't expecting anything for a couple more weeks. I sure hope we get it. We need SCBA real bad.

    Anyone else heard anything? Can't believe awards are coming so soon. Congrats to those who have heard.

    My understanding was that if you weren't notified of an award, don't hold your breath. The rest of the money for the program hasn't been appropriated yet for the next "round."

    The big rush was to get the grants awarded as they had to use the money that was there before a certain time.
