    Default After 28 Rounds, how many are left???

    Does anyone have any guess as to how many award rounds are left? I spoke with a Grant specialist at a work shop and she stated round 27 was the so called "Big One" and the awardess in following round will start to get smaller till they run out of money.

    I was just wondering because I have 2 grants out there that are somewheres in grant land and still no word on them since we received the 1199's, 10 questions, and one reduction. All of this took place in November and December of 08'. This waitting game is getting really nerve racking.

    Talk about having racked nerves. At least you have had your 1199s and 10 Qs. We have our operations application out there in grant land with no 1199 or 10 Qs to date.

    There is about $60 million remaining to be awarded. If the average awards per round (168) continues; it equates to about 4 more rounds. If the AFG continues with a small rounds, like last week, could easily double the remaining rounds that remain.

    At this point chief , I'd start putting the beverages on Ice. It's my understanding that the last of the sorry we ran out of money letters have gone out. Nothing is guaranteed until the money's in your bank account ,but you've made it this far.
    Have you checked your junk mail folder?

    Thanks for the moral support. No junk mail folder I am getting everything, no 1199 update on the 2007 OP’s grant page. As far as the beverages there are non left to put on ice. I have been using them to calm the nerves, should have bought stock in Budweiser. I think I might need to turn to Jack D if we don’t here anything soon.

    I don't know how much money is left, but the FEMA rep at the grant workshop this weekend said if you've got a good application that is aimed at priority 1 for 2009 (when that comes out), submit it as well -- worst situation is you end up getting funded from the 2008 money. He said that as surprising as it is, sometimes awardees don't take the money or return some, so if you're through the electronic scoring don't give up all hope (but don't bet anything on it, of course).

    Will they tell you what your score was on the preliminary screening? We just got rejected last week so I'm assuming we survived the screening and made it to the peer review?

    You're not alone. No emails from FG on 08 Equipment grant since they received it. No DJ, no questions, nothing. Just went thru email file (on their website) again to check if I missed anything.

    I was wondering if it would be worth calling them and asking about the status of our application.

    Your thoughts?

    After applying every year since this started our department was finally awarded a grant for communications equipment. I could never understand why we never were awarded a grant other years, I even sat on the peer review panel several years and would look at our application when I got home and could not figure why ours was not selected . But yet this year it happened, so the old adage try and try again works or some of the same folks got tired of looking at our applications.
