    Cool DJ's/Awards

    OK, not saying that this information is the gospel by any means, just passing on what I've been told: "First round of DJ's hitting next week with Round 1 first week of February." A little weird since I thought they didn't release DJ's til after grants were rolling but everything seems to be backwards anyways.

    Typically a few rounds are awarded before the computer DJ's drop, but at this point anything can happen. It's anyone's guess on what they will actually do.

    Sounds about right.

    Thanks for asking a few questions for us.

    It would seem to make sense... with 2010 applications approaching so soon, there will be alot of folks still in limbo in regards to this year's applications.
    Does anyone think they'll push back the 2010 cycle?

    At this stage of the game and as crazy as it has been this year, nothing would surprise me at this point.

    What i've been told is that they are still waiting for the ok to write the program guidance for 2010. The approval may not come until sometime in February. This may mean that the aplication period will not open until March or April.

    Thanks for the information. I just can't understand why we can't get accurate “official” information from DHS. I'm sure there are valid reasons for the delays, and perfectly understandable reasons that they are doing what they are doing. I really like they idea of getting most of the DJ letters out of the way first. No sense getting your hopes up for nothing. It is just frustrating to those of us that put a lot of effort in to this process to not know when things are going to happen, or why they are delayed. They have plenty of available means to pass this information along. It was great when we had RKB Manager on here for their grants, at least we had accurate first hand information.

    Can't confirm on DJs (although as others said it would seem odd to change the process) but Round 1 is due out before February.

    Awards are set to start on 1/22. Congressional officials would get notifications on 1/20. Quoting SLY on Award Date thread.

    That would be good for us--everybody knows what they have and can move forward. Would be a nightmare for AFG staffers at the outset, semi-annual and close-out periods since the workload would spike radically. And, we'd all be cranky since our reports weren't accepted right away. Seems like that would totally screw up the work flow.

    They have a new web page. Use it and keep possible grantees informed and with a timetable. Unlike a mushroom, valuable and usefull information would make all of the process work smoothly and help every ems department plan for our future.

    Facts. Not fiction, hearsay, or any other drama.

    Spoke with a grant specialist yesterday and they stated that awards should start appearing at the end of the month, Jan. I asked about if the rounds would goes as usual or differently, and they stated that they would be announced every week unitl the beginning to the middle of summer.

    Got one 1199 for Ops / COmms grant and hoping to get another for my vehicle / quick attack app. Keepn my fingers crossed....
