    Default 2014 AFG Estimated.....when?

    Dear Gurus:
    It has been awhile since my participation here. I am trying to coordinate several things and am wondering if anyone has a guess on when the 2014 AFG applications will begin?

    So if we haven't even gotten the first 1199a issued for this year yet and its April 1. I don't see any way they can have half this year grants awarded by then. So would they open 2014 without having made a decision on all the 2013 money?

    Half the year's grants? They are still claiming that they will have all of them out before opening the 2014 AFG application and that's entirely doable still at this point. Now granted the rounds will have to be whopper rounds but if they start awarding by April 15th or so then they will still have 10-12 weeks and still be open before end of July.

    Spoke with our regional rep today on other matters but took the opportunity to ask for an updated status regarding the much anticipated release of 2013...... He said they were peer reviewing the FP&S and the remaining AFG this week. He said at least two weeks before we see any movement........

    Heard from a peer reviewer that they graded some vehicle apps yesterday. This is probably why we have not seen any movement yet. I think they finish up today, so maybe next week we will start to see some positive movement.
