    Smile 1199's

    Are most of the 1199"S recieved so far to those departments who had grant writer's do grant's or did they do their own grants ????
    I would Like to see how many departments did their own grant's or had some one else do them and how successful each was.

    Talking 2 1199's today

    Just got the 1199 for my OPS. It wasn't there at last check around 11:50am CST

    I got my regional 1199 earlier this morning. It looks to me more like automated notifications.

    Now I hope and pray my Vehicle app comes through. C'mon baby, Daddy needs an new truckie too.

    Two more OPS 1199s...found them about ten minutes ago...wasn't there thirty minutes earlier...I've been steadily checking them all day...one for a ton of medical equipment including a 12-lead monitor; the other for a cascade, gear, and SCBAs.

    Been a good day so far...

    ETA: Found them around 2:45pm CST.

    Not a grant writer per se...I work as a firefighter at two full-time fire departments. I write mostly in the two counties I work in...although I did write four in two other counties...so I don't know how you would label me...but I don't have a website, no business card/phone number, etc., etc...just word of mouth through the firefighters at the depts. I've written for...wrote 20 this year...have gotten 11 1199s so far...

    For the new guy here- When you are in the AFG on line application- where exectly are you locating the 1199 notices? FYI, someone else did prior grants so I am unable to view a prior 1199. Lastly, does an e-mail from AFG follow? Thanks.

    Default Cost reduction???

    I have to start by saying WOOHOO!!!!! Just got the 1199a dropped!! However, 1 of the line items looks like the quantity was changed to 0. Is this how they do reductions? Or was this a mess up in the app? It was never noticed until now.
    So there were 3 line items. If this was a mistake on the app, Will this line be dead from the start?

    I had the same thing happen on our rescue tool application. I can understand the reasoning on ours. Asked for a permanent mount power unit as well as a gas to be portable. The eliminated one of them. I would say that item is dead in the water unless you want to try your luck appealing it. Need to have all of your ducks in a row to justify the need when you do so. Good Luck.

    Let me see. Hosted Kurt for two of the agency hosted seminars. Attended one of Kurt's seminar as a student, and went along to help pass out papers to make number four. We are trained to write our own grants, but what a resource we have. Thanks again Kurt.

    Kelly I just may have to put you in heavy contention against limeforever in consecutive wins column. Keep it up dude. I know you must now hold the money raising record for current and past presidents their.Congrats on the rescue tool grant now.

    Found 2 more I did that weren't there an hour or so ago.

    First time awardee for a department that was 0/8 prior to this year getting a nice treat: A new aerial, SCBA, and TIC!

    Also found an Ops for a neighboring department.

    Been good so far to the many I've helped...maybe I will score something for my station soon!

    I think you're saying that the qty change to 0 on the line item is the reduction I have read about and not a mistake on my app?

    I would say it is a reduction. But is the cost amount also 0 or is it your original amount.

    If everything is 0 across that line, I would say it is a reduction without question, but without knowing what it is was for, cannot advise any further than to say call the helpdesk to get a better clarification. They are always happy to answer any questions.

    Way to go Sly on getting that 0 for 8 department an award. Bet they were losing hope and now they'll have a hard time believing you got it for them.
