    No, no 1199, but it was explained to me that since we already have a couple of previous successful AFG grants under our belt, they'd probably just use our 1199 from those grants. The information would be the same.

    The communication we had with them a few weeks ago was that they wanted to know, if awarded, how many personnel would be operating out of the station. This was after our previous communication in October/November where they requested about a dozen or so documents including copy of the land deed, detailed budget, approved architectural drawings, and so forth, all of which we provided. So nothing definite but certainly looking more promising than most. No DJ yet, either

    Check the 1199 form on the earlier successful grants. You might find the SCG reference number added to the old form.

    Oh yea! It is looking good for you. Hang in there. Good things come to those who wait. I hope that is true anyway. I am still waiting to hear something on my ladder truck.
    Good luck chief.

    Been a couple of weeks now since the DJ's went out on the station grants...any news on when "the rest of us" should be hearing something? This waiting and not knowing has been going on for a long time now....
