    Default Any word on 08 remaining funds

    Does anyone know what is going on with the remaining funds from 08? We are still in the running and were told two weeks ago we should here something in two weeks. We havenít heard a peep since. Any clue as to when they will be awarding the remainder of the money.

    Good luck with the "in a couple weeks" thing. I received a 1199 and 10 question back in early november last year on a brush truck and was just denied about a month ago. I was told that you should know something in a couple weeks stuff for months. Somewhat aggeravating, but don't get me wrong AFG program is one the best funding sources to ever become available to the fire service! We did get a get a AFG operations grant this year for SCBA's, TIC, Frag tank, gear cleaning equip. So still a good year in all. Where is follansbee at? I am in the south eastern part of good ol WV.

    We have not received an 1199A update or a DJ letter for our O8 OPíS application. We are going nuts waiting for word about the grant.

    We are located in the northern panhandle between Weirton and Wheeling.

    Our bids all came back higher than what DHS reduced us to so we petitioned for an increase in funds, we were denied because all 2008 AFG funds had been spent per the letter I recieved about a month ago.

    Not the reason they denied you, but that's neither here nor there. Reason you got turned down is that they're not responsible for price increases so if you have to match a little extra still a bargain and a half to have the award.

    What they probably meant or should have said was the funding was "earmarked", because it has not been spent. About $42 million remains that has not been awarded to date.

    Just got a phone call from our AFG representative and she said we are still in the running with our 08 operations grant. She said we should know by the end of summer one way or the other.

    Anybody else get phone calls today about 08 grants?

    Just curious did you get a DJ already, last year we got a DJ for a regional grant and then they called later and said there is left over money and we accepted with a reduction we could live with, come to think about it, that also happened on 2005 for all new SCBA's and air system.

    No DJ no 1199A update. We are still in limbo.

    Yes this was a 2008 FO that we got the DJ for unless there were remaining funds. Don't think I am going to hold my breath, the letter DJ stated that the decisions would not be made until August/September

    They're ahead of the game because of a few awards that were turned down. Like Bugle's stats they have $42 mil or so unallocated on the equipment side.

    Just got an addition to the 1199. We have had a banner week, first the fire prevention grant and now five inch hose and respirators. This is for an 08 grant that we got the "if we have excess funds" letter.

    Spoken like a true salesman. What grant did your Chief use for this?

    I don't know why I wasn't thinking, but appears that they pulled in 200 comp DJs on that other review during FP review. Found 4 so far that are now getting the 2008s. Must have been the annual computer glitch keeping them out, and is now being corrected.

    No, we are still waiting. Course haven't heard anything on the fire prevention award, that we did get the 10q's and submitted immediately. I haven't even told the Chief yet we may get the 2008 op grant, didn't want to get his hopes up.

    The first two days of AFG review last week were spent by many reviewers working on additional 2008 applications.

    Was that because of the computer burp that caused the extra awards to come out off the computer DJs that were reviewed back in Fire Prevention?

    Out of curiousity; a mix of projects (vehicles, ops) or just certain items. I still say there was a glitch in the PPE scoring last year. Found one that got a computer DJ now with an award #.

    Had 2 others that never should have been computer denied also.

    No explanation provided, other than they had more money to award and not enough applications reviewed. The ones that I saw were mostly Operations and Safety, some from FD's some from non-affiliated EMS.

    Sorry, folks, by the rules, I really can't give you more than that....

    Sly you find that one since the dump of them 2 weeks ago? Found 15 when whoever posted the original sighting, haven't checked back since. Maybe tomorrow when we get back from seeing the baking bun on the ultrasound, beats cleaning now that the slow(er) season is here.

    No, found with the others. Still curious on the two PPE apps kicked by computer when others that should have scored lower got through.
