    Question Grant info

    Hi:

    Got an email today from FEMA asking me to fill out an on-line direct deposit form. It asked for routing numbers, etc. for the town's account.

    I had to fill it in, print it out, and take it to the bank to have it verified by a bank employee. I was instructed to send it back to FEMA by Priority Mail. Mailed it this afternoon.

    Good news???

    9C7: Did you receive any sort of notification prior to that?

    Default curious...

    Now I am curious. Direct Deposit information was a requirement on the Grant Application. So, why is FEMA asking for it again?

    Post Direct Deposit

    The only difference that I can tell is that it must be taken to your bank for an "Official Certification" from the bank. We did not get the "questionaire" regarding whether we still wanted the grant; were we able to meet the 10% matching: etc?

    Question E-mail response

    Does anyone know if the e-mail response goes to the person who filled out the application or the Chief or the mayor or city administrator?

    Thumbs up

    Hi:

    It was the same info we filled out with the original app, the difference being the "bank certification."

    This was the first contact I had since the application was submitted.

    I completed it and was the only one notified of the request for direct deposit info.

    Question

    Yesterday a sales rep called me to see if he could show us some cascade systems and I informed him we were still waiting to hear from FEMA about our grant application. He then told me that some departments in his sales area had recieved notifications last week that their applications did not make the final review. Has anyone recieved anything stating that their application was denied? He knew exactly what grants I was talking about, it just makes wonder. He stated that a dept was planning on purchasing a system but had to cancel after recieving a denial on the grant.

    PS IT WAS THE FRIST GRANT I EVER DID AND ALL WE HAVE NOW IS A 1985 GRASS TRUCK

    It looks to me like FEMA is making phone calls for the notifications. On top of that, those of us that have not received a notification, I think are still in the running for a grant, because FEMA does not know who still has matching funds available for the grant.

    Default Direct Deposit Notice

    I got an email on July 9th with instructions to go to the application site and verify and electronically submit the SF-199A Direct Deposit Form. Then to print a copy and have our bank fill in their info in section 3. Then send it next day air to FEMA. It arrived there this morning, July 11th. I hope this is good news but will wait to celebrate until I see the deposit in the account.
    I will keep you updated if I hear anything else.

    On vendors call - I know of departments who were approved for grants that actually received calls from vendors before they were notified by the grant giver.

    I received the notification for the direct deposit form also and filled it out and mailed it. To those who have received a grant this year - is it possible your could give us a heads up on this part of the process? We can all use a little hope.

    I do know a department who was notified weeks ago that their application didn't make the cut. Just a guess - but if u received the direct deposit notification u are still in the running.

    To the dept. who only has 3 members - god bless you and keep working. This is how nearly every volunteer dept. started.

    Good luck to all who are still waiting and congratulations to those who already received the "golden call".
