    Default DJs - 2/13/09

    Yes, it is Friday the 13th and DJs are out. Just received one for our FO app for SCBAs. Third year in a row we've been denied, but our first time making it into peer review.
    Least I no longer have to wait at the bar!

    Question for the experts;

    We have made it this far and still no DJ for our OP’s grant. What are our odds of getting funded now.

    If as of this morning you have no DJ to your personal or portal e-mail, you might still be ok. Do you have a previous 1199A that you can check for a 2008 Award Number?

    (Check your spam folder, though!)

    We were awarded an OP’s grant in 2007 and I have been checking the 1199A for a possible change/update to 2008.

    Just getting really nervous with it getting so close to the end.

    Do the DJs showup in the mail box in Grant portal? Or just via email?

    Got DJ Friday also. It would be easier on my heart to let me go in the first rounds and not drag it to the end.

    Apparently, my department was apart of these DJ's as well. The only bad part is that the on-line system is not telling me that I got one. I called FEMA to inquire about something else and they told me that we were turned down on 2/13/09. Start the process all over for the next round...

    You think that's bad, my department was parts of these dj's that went out on 2/13. I didn't find out until a month later when I decided to call FEMA to ask them a question. Apparently, they are having an issue with the online system. They are trying to resend it to me now.
