    Based upon the experiences of the members in this forum....

    From the time that your 1199A form is accepted by the system, on average, how long does is take to get an official award notification?

    500 C Street, SW, Room 350
    Washington, DC 20472

    Attn: Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program

    My 1199a was delivered and signed for, however has not been uploaded yet. So I called and left a
    Message for the person in charge of the 1199a receipt and managment. I got a call today from her stating that "DO NOT MAIL IN YOUR 1199A'S" the address is apprently wrong and the letters may or may not make it to the correct person... The fax number that I was given is 301 998 8699. Ms. Clark is the in charge person... Be careful on approach, she's a bit overworked amd fiesty!

    I hope this helps you guys!
    How did you find her contact information? Our 1199 still doesn't appear to have been uploaded. We started this process over 6 weeks ago now. I would like to call or email to verify receipt. Thanks!

    After you fax it to the 301#, it's a matter of patience. It will take her a couple of days to get it submitted to the finance division. Once that happens and your account and SAM information is verified to be real and to match each other you will receive an email in your FEMA AFG mailbox stating that your information has been validated / accepted by the system and that these are the account numbers that FEMA will use to make direct deposits.
    Once that email is received, (according to the extremely well experienced people on here) you typically will be awarded in 4 to 6 weeks. Good luck and I hope this helps!

    I called the help desk and asked for the person that handles the 11199A forms. They connectex me right to her and gave me her direct call line. If I were you I would re-submit your form to the fax # and information that I put on here earlier!

    Nice job SmithMD, you're on fire. Guess I'll have to run the whole list after I get done with this private foundation app spreadsheet I'm eyeball deep in. Almost as bad as the IRS paperwork....

    We got a 1199a update today for 13 air packs and 30 face pieces. I haven't checked in a week so not sure when it posted. This is my first ever AFG grant. I owe it all to the great class in New Ulm last year. Thanks Kurt!

    This being my first time, what do i need to do if anything with the 1199a. It is our departments 2nd AFG grant (received PPE in 2008). Does FEMA go by the 1199a filed in 2008?

    If it says "Update 1199A" rather than "View 1199A" in the action box, you need to verify all of the information and change anything necessary.

    If everything remains the same, you will hit submit and if no Print button appears, the system accepted the form. If the Print button appears, simply follow the instructions and fax to the number listed above in this thread.

    Congrats on a pending award!

    On average it takes about 4 weeks between the 1199A reference appearing and the award, but in some cases can take longer. If your SAM.gov account is active and matches the 1199A info it should happen any time. It's just a waiting game.
