    We should not forget administration cost which I read somewhere reduces the amount for awards to $335,000,000

    I think we are still at 2756 grants for $170,660,864. I believe round 7 was included in an earlier FEMA announcement.

    Lay the points and take the over






    just kidding...the 170 million figure sounds right.

    Lightbulb math - its a four letter word

    according to Firehouse.com's article on the home page -

    WITH ROUND 7 INCLUDED - total grants awarded - 2,269
    - total money awarded - $170,660,864.00

    Now comes the math - if you use the $335 million figure
    which is supposedly taking out the administration costs
    for this grant process - leaves $164,339,136.00

    Hope this clears the air -

    still keeping the faith
