    Erniefire,
    What do you mean "both" grants? I thought we were only allowed one?

    Question

    I sent an e-mail to FEMA on why myself and several other departments used to be able to see the 1199 form, but can't anymore and why some still can see it. No response yet, but I will keep everyone informed. If anyone else knows why or has encountered the same change, let me know.

    Thanks

    Attached is the response I recieved from FEMA when I asked them about the 1199A. It was simple and at the time I recieved this, I hadn't recieved the question e-mail. I still haven't recieved any notification to print the form yet. It is still on our app. site.
    Stay Safe!!!

    What I mean by "both" is we have a town and a rural district that is two fire depeartments, we were notified on both to the tune of 306,000 for apparatus.

    Default FEMA Reply

    Here is the reply I receied from FEMA when I asked why I no longer have the 1199 link, but used to.

    FEMA:
    You recieved that link in error. The applicants that recieved a
    notification from the Program Office should only have this link. If you
    received an email requesting you to fill one out, you would have access to
    that link. Sorry for the confusion, it was a system glitch.

    Sincerely,

    Now what do I think? Grant or no grant? Yes,
    You recieved that link in error. The applicants that recieved a
    notification from the Program Office should only have this link. If you
    received an email requesting you to fill one out, you would have access to
    that link. Sorry for the confusion, it was a system glitch.

    Hmmm. Maybe I dont want to know what I think about that.
    But at this point, still NO news is GOOD news. I am really not looking forward though to that "Regret" letter/email.

    I hope that you meant that you filled out the 1199 requests last week and not the grant applications??

    guys, got the letter requesting me to fill out the 1199 form today.
    Went to site and the link was not there. Called the person who emailed me from FEMA. He said it should be there. He is working to find out why it is not there. At no point have I received the questionare about being able to keep our end of the bargain.
    I will keep yall informed.

    At least some of you are getting a "taste" of victory.
    I have no link, no email or letter as of yet(Letter is
    probably lost in the mail). Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Like so many have said before, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS(Maybe)
    Good Luck everyone!!
    Knowledge is the key.

    Still no word back from FEMA. The gentleman I spoke to yesterday still did not call me back. I am sure this was a mistake and I was not supposed to get this email. Heck, he won't even answer his phone, it goes right into his voice mail. Oh well, wait and see, wait and see.

    Good Luck.

    Mike Lacey-

    Did you get either e-mail (the questionaire or the mail directing you to print it, bring it to the bank, and send it in) from FEMA before sending the form?

    It seems that some are only geting the direct deposit e-mail and not the questionaire and vice-versa.

    And what do you mean that you "got the response you wanted today," did your department get a grant? If that's the case ...what's the scoop? Details for us poor folks out here!!!

    Yes we got both the questionnaire and the 1199 form. We got notified today from our congressman that we will be receiving the $52,000 we applied for (PPE, communication equipment & thermal imaging camera.

    Keep in mine they have only given out less than 1 1/2% of the money to less than 1 1/2% of the 5500 companies eligible, which means you still have approximately a 1 in 4 chance of receiving something. Hang in there because there still is a long way to go.

    Good Luck

    Fantastic Mike - congratulations to you and all the other departments out there who've won so far!!!

    You're right - it's early in the game yet, so I'm not giving up any kind of hope yet. This whole process will be going on until the end of the year. Let cross our fingers that extra $300 million gets added to the FIRE ACT spending. That'll effectively double everyone's chances.

    Thanks for the quick reply, and stay safe out there! Good job.

    Chad
