    Post Second round of awards

    One of the MN Senatorís offices contacted our FD and stated that the second rounds of awards are going to be announced Monday July 22, 2002. Have to wait until Monday to know for sure.

    I seem to remember someone stating that FEMA is going to release grant winnerís names every two weeks. Of course, anyone winning a grant will hear about before the press release. Your state and local politicians hear about it before you do. Then they contact you.

    Good luck to everyone on their grants. Hope you don't have to wait too long.

    We received a congratulatory call from our U.S. Senator's office today. I guess we will "offically" get the word with the announcements next week.

    Good luck to all.

    Cool

    Fireman077 - from a fellow Virginian - how did the process work for you? We received an email on 9 Jul for the Direct Deposit Form (1199A) and sent it back but have not heard anything. Did u all receive the 1199A request or just a call fm Sen. Wolf's office?

    By the way - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

    lindengunny -

    You may want to check the E-mails and Direct Deposits thread. Some other guys got the same Direct Deposit e-mail on the 9th without the questionaire too, and were told it was an "error."

    LINDENGUNNY - We had the same types of experiences this year that many others have posted on related threads. I got a phone call from FEMA on July 2 asking the "questions" - still accept if awarded?, able to match?, etc. The following week got the e-mail regarding the 1199A. Then got a phone call from Senator Warner's office yesterday. I will believe it when I see it announced officially.

    CAR120 and FIREMAN077 - thanks for the quick responses. Since we received the DirDep email a week b4 Pete(thats if I am following the thread correctly) and haven't heard yeh or ney fm FEMA was still hoping. I know Pete said there was a two day window when things were hokie - hope we fall outside that. Seems we got the email the same day as u Fireman077. Guess I should find a number to call - but then again not knowing still means hope. I read where one department early on never received a questionaire or DirDep email and only knew they had the money when they read it here at firehouse.com. But I would imagine the good Senator's office in Va. would have notified us by now due to our asking for fund's for a tanker.

    Stay safe - congrat's and good luck.

    Congrats to fellow firehouse forumers Mike Lacey, jdrais, and fireman077 and your departments - and any others I may have missed - on your "official" grant announcements.


    Time to celebrate, way to go!

    Question Scruggs

    Congrats on your award! Did they ever send you the direct deposit e-mail for you to print, take to the bank, and return it to FEMA? I'm just wondering if they are needing this information before making the public announcements. It looks like that it has been taking about 2 weeks after asking the questions to the time of a department recieving an award.

    Cool

    It's nice to see my department's name on the official list.

    Scruggs, don't you have any politicians up for re-election in November? I'm surprised they didn't try to get some mileage out of it.

    Good luck to eveyone else in your grants.
