    Any ideas on a rough timeframe for the AFG this year. Does anyone want to start the pool this time around? or is it too early to start the pool? March 2011???

    Doesn't 2011 AFG need to be funded? Witht the new republicans in office it may take awhile!

    Looks like I may have time to redo my app about 10-15 times this year. lol Good thing I started working on them already, might get some time to enjoy spring instead of pecking away on the keyboard night and day.

    I am not going to do the poll for the opening date.

    I will do the the poll for the first 1199's for 2011, as 2010 was very interesting.

    I am going to say the Opening date for 2011 AFG will be...April 18th. 15 days after the Valley Center, Kansas grant writing seminar closes.

    That would be a good class to attend. A great facility too.

    Again.... April 18th.

    If past history is a guide, the preliminary date from DHS has as much value as a guess in this forum.

    Congress can't even pass a fiscal year budget; why would we think they will re-authorize AFG any time soon.

    My guess April 4th.
