    Unhappy Afg Question

    Since i am new to this waiting game, i have a question. If the reviews are completed why do they wait to do the announcements. I understand that they have to get 2008 done, so just do it and get it finished. Hold funds for 09 i agree with but start announcements, it would not hurt anything that i can figure.

    Boy I hope you get awarded. There be a reason matey. Remember we are talking about the government. I'm certain with a set number of staff and several programs & agencies overlapping, they know a set procedure will help reduce conflicts. Confirmations of accounts, etc; A whole multitude of reasons that are lost to an almost beginner like myself.

    If they already know the departments that did not make it past the computer scoring and to peer panel why don't they just go ahead and tell them, rather thanputting them through the agony of waiting?

    Just pull yourself up to the Waiting Bar with the rest of us, order-up a cold beverage of your favorite flavor and ETOH content, and be content. Just about the time that you are ready to climb that handrail on the highest bridge in town, the Fed will surprise you with an 1199a update request or better yet, the 10q's!

    It takes longer because they're making sure things are kosher before the money goes out, versus other grant programs that give money out willy-nilly and then try to take it back or ignore bad things that happened.

    1199As and denials will be here sooner than later, for some the good news couldn't come quickly enough, for others the bad news came too soon. 20000 apps means at least 15000 unhappy folks by the time February rolls around. Start working on the next round to improve your chances. Hit a workshop, Kurt's got a list, we've got some scheduled and are taking more requests, and there are plenty of others out there too. No time like the present to learn more about taking someone else's money to fix some of our issues. That's what a lot of others do every year and why some have hit 5+ awards in recent years.

    Some of those departments that received a Dear John for the '08 AFG are now getting notices of approval. The back and forth of emotions with this must resemble those of dating a really hot stripper. (figure that one out)
