    Default Station Grant Timeline

    Didn't see it posted anywhere around here so figured I'd let everyone know about it. And yes, that is close to 3 months worth of an application period on this one:

    http://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/p...rogram_id=5516

    •May 21, 2009: Release of guidance package;

    •July 2, 2009 – September 29, 2009: Receipt of applications and expedited peer review process;

    •October 15, 2009 – December 31, 2009: Awards announced and processed on a rolling basis. Please note that from mid-September to mid-October, all financial systems within DHS must be shut down to reconcile obligations. As well, OMB must reapportion grant monies back to FEMA after the first of the fiscal year, so this will cause delays in grant awards

    They missed the 21st on the PG, but it's supposed to be in review at the top right now so should see it shortly.

    Will this affect the AFG awards as far as when awards will start?

    Just an FYI guys, I did see a copy of what appears to be the Guidance Documents.
    Just this morning, but still not posted on the web page. I am trying to confirm for sure but it came from DHS.

    It is only the overview of the program, just read the entire Document, It does offer some excellent Advice though.

    Well ,certainly looks like the kind of product this new bunch of goofballs DC would come up with. Make sure to discuss how you FEEL about fire stations.

    bango! nail on the head. I wonder if the station qualifications will be the same as supreme court nominees? They MUST have an agenda stuck in there somewhere.

    The three month application period must have been a rumor, because the guidance currently says:

    Dates: Completed applications must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, July 10, 2009.

    I haven't seen it on the firegrantsupport page yet (I, too, saw the tap space expand and then contract), but this looks like the real thing:

    Let the games begin... no rest for the weary. Not even a month reprieve fomr this. Looks like evewrything I have been telling people would be there is there... and a whole lot more. How about them spreadsheets? Better have a EAP, Green Energy consultant on staff to comply here.Noted points:
    • 30% solar generated hot water
      2% natural daylight in rooms
      500 year floodplan elevations
      24/7/365 STAFFED for higher consideration
      vehicle exhaust systems
      segeregated sleeping and showering facilities
      emergency power sprinklers and alarms
      motion activated lighting

    and all of that was just on the first read! 100 projects predicted funded, whew, the competition and odds are off the charts here.

    Geez Louise.. this one is no walk in the park guys! You better have a WHOLE LOT of this done now or you don't stand a chance.

    So if you're not a career dept don't waste the ink typing out an application is how I read it.
    Sure they will throw in a combination and maybe one PG county type vol stn with live-ins to make it look good.
