    I figured that would have gotten a raise out of some others Kurt. Glad you caught on.

    Appears to be the case. Would have thought the AFG DJ's would be the first ones to drop. Maybe they're coming too, but haven't found any.

    Mine too. Reason given - peer review wanted a more detailed evaluation on the success of the program.

    We put in for a Knox Box system. Success? Less broken doors?

    Sorry to hear that guys. Evaluation process with these grants being perfomance based now has become a big issue in FP&S.That's why a lot of the "fire prevention trailer" apps are failing as there is no eval process described.

    Yea had a couple of winners this year and the one who got DJ'd this morning ( fire prevetion trailer) rushed his project at last minute and was not able to accomplsih what I told had to be done and it got rejected, as expected, for that very reason. At least he has the basis, and the reason/lesson now, of what needs to happen though.

    Now if we can just get the AFG DJ's released.......

    Why would we all not have received such a notice as of yet? Nothing received on the turn downs as of yet.

    If you are referring to strictly the FP&S grant DJs then I suggest you wait 24 hours before saying you have not received one and also check for any email that may have been sent to your online application mailbox. If after checking 24 hours from now you still do not see a DJ then I would take that as a sign that perhaps you were going to be funded.

    Just had our AFG workshop last night. Was told that the pg has not been approved yet, so they do not have a start date for this years AFG. They hope that it will be soon. They also hope to have the dj's out by the time the new app starts. We will see.

    They are probably confusing the now infamous "Turndown Letter" that AFG released last week. No one has received a DJ notice as of right now for any project.Find it hard to beleive that the FPS conducting the session did not quash that rumor.

    Somebody probably deleted that e-mail after reading only the subject line...

    Kurt.....he's providing a copy of the letter and application to members of the Maryland Team to review. Already spoke to Regional rep and they're weren't sure why he got denied in electronic review. He's not new to grant writing so would say he knows a DJ letter since this is his third one for a vehicle.
