    Dude! Congratulations. Hope it was a big one.

    Want to make it super special. Share your winning narrative with the first one who asks for it!

    So? I'm asking of course. jam24u@windstream.net

    P.S. (Are the 2009 awards showing yet?)

    9 Firefighters for just over $905K. Not to complain, but this is really happening too fast and I hope the award announcements come later in April. As of now, no announcement just a confirmation from our Senator Cornyn. The word from FEMA says early April announcement for Round 1 on SAFER

    Should see more soon if they're awarding R1 shortly. Haven't heard peep 1 about an R&R project. We have 5 hiring with 1199As, but nothing on the other side. Makes sense since hiring outscores R&R by default, but the fact that no one has found one in all the forum posters and lurkers means they can't be far along on SAFER.

    3 new 1199As that weren't there last night came today. 1 prior reduction, 2 more under price limits. Not as tasty as fresh maple syrup but still good.

    Haven't checked. Did find the reduction on a quick attack last week but that 1199A hasn't shown up yet.

    Still have one lingering 1199 from December waiting on Qs, and got an 1199 a few weeks ago waiting as well. Found two reductions for new 2010 clients within the last week, no 1199s for those yet.

    Found a couple reductions last week too, haven't had time to check yet this week. Figured if denials are coming before Friday no sense in going nuts checking since we'll know soon enough...

    Brian,

    Any sense if the recent 199As have come from apps with reductions posted mid to late december?

    I've got 2 of those still hanging around with no movement since...

    One reduction that got the 1199A last Monday was reduced the week before. A few are still hanging around from December. No apparent rhyme or reason to it.

    Got an 1199 last week for a regional project - there have been no reductions to the budget to date - if that helps.

    We are in the same boat here ! We are still sitting with a reduction on our equipment grant application which was found on just prior to Christmas. I keep patiently watching our previous awards awaiting for an 1199a to hopefully show up soon or later.

    Cool

    Now I have a question; If tech review receives these app in order in which they are to be awarded, why are some people seeing reductions in the past few weeks and getting the 1199a's and the ten questions, while others like mine have seen a reduction last December and haven't head anything since? Or does tech review put these in order of awards?
