    Always gets quiet around now because of the fiscal year change. Plus was a stutter step to get some awards out before Sep 30th to make Congress happy, so would imagine they're all behind the scenes playing catch-up with data entry and other fun admin stuff. Probably a good amount of paper apps to deal with because of the short app period and warning so they'd have to be integrated into the online system somehow. So doubt we'll see much forward progress for at least another 2 weeks, but at least once that's done they can keep the flow going until the money is gone.

    I agree Chief but to their credit, this delay is not AFG admins fault at this point. We need to be looking at a lame duck Congress who took an early recess and is still not at work as they are too all consumed with trying to ensure they still have a job 2 weeks from now.

    All the more reason why a buttload of them do NOT need to have a job two weeks from now.

    The election and the end of the federal fiscal year should not be so close together. That's probably not a fixable problem, but I choose to bark about it anyway.

    Not that is changes anything but I feel it is important to establish a contact person in each of your elected officials office. Speak to them on a regular basis, even if you do not need anything. Call them when they do something you agree with, call them when you disagree as well. Always be professional and respectful, build a rapport. Again this probably will change nothing, but you will at least establish credibility with your employee.

    There's all the political fun, and then there's the part about having apps to enter in the system between the paper apps, plus there are supposedly apps still to be Peer Reviewed since they didn't finish way back when. Mostly paper apps since more came in than expected with the shortened online app period, and they don't want to start giving money away when some of the apps that haven't been reviewed might outscore those in line. Peer process in the works to bring some folks in for a couple of days and finish it all off since they want it back on track before FP opens. But still should see some movement anyway, can't imagine them giving away that much dough if they stick to the highest scoring apps and just run it on a slow leak until the other stuff is handled.

    Does anyone have an idea of how many applications AFG received for equipment and vehicles this time around? Perhaps a better chance for some of us to get funded this year..............
    Looking for 12 SCBA's here this time around.

    I submitted an ops grant at 3:46pm Eastern time on the last day (i.e., 1 hour and 14 minutes to go) and it was numbered in the 6500 range. That's the lowest I've seen on final-day ops submissions, but of course the paper apps are the unknown.

    Found these numbers from a previous thread, I heard there were about 12K total apps this year, not sure of the exact breakdown.

    I believe there were just shy of 12,000 total apps initially submitted plus a little over 700 paper applications received after computer submissions.

    Had the same thing happen, but if you wait about 30-40 seconds the screen will populate and everything works properly.

    Ready to see some movement, at this point I dont care if I get a DJ I just want to know if I got anything. Although it sure would be nice to announce it at the Parish wide christmas party. The suspense is killing me.

    Yea ain't that the truth but, understandable certainly. One thing nice about being a week out from election, the current administration is doing a full court press and pulling out all the stops with FEMA to respond properly.
